Yogurt: This dairy product contains many of the vital nutrients the body needs. It contains a high amount of calcium, vitamin B12, phosphorus, magnesium, and potassium among other minerals. Ideally, you should go for unsweetened, Greek-style yogurt. You may toss in some seeds, berries, or nuts to bring texture and taste and make your own healthy, customized snack.
Eggs: Eggs are an excellent source of protein and can curb your hunger. Boil or poach an egg and eat it with salt and pepper for a great healthy snack. But avoid frying the egg as it will give you extra calories from the oil.
Popcorn: Popcorn mostly consists of air. If you pop the kernels with healthy oil and eat them with nothing but a bit of seasoned salt, it won’t affect your body or help you put on any extra weight. Just make sure it’s in moderation!
Beans: Beans are high in protein which will help keep your energy up. Their high fiber content can also lead to a feeling of fullness with a lower calorie intake.
Cucumbers: Cucumbers make the perfect, crunchy summer snack as they have a lot of water in them. Also, they contain beta carotene which is good for the eyes.
Strawberries: One serving of these delicious berries is said to contain more vitamin C than an orange. Strawberries also contain antioxidants, potassium, and fiber. These heart-shaped berries are also good for the heart as they do not contain any cholesterol, sodium, or fat.
Broccoli: This vegetable, which is usually not liked by children, is a favorite amongst the people who are diet conscious or on their weight loss journey. Broccoli also contains a lot of fiber along and vitamins A, C, E, and K. This makes this green vegetable a healthy option to snack on.
This is the list of just a few of the many fruits and vegetables that are out there and can be consumed without any kind of guilt. So try them out and let us know how it goes with your weight loss plan!
