5 Super Low Calorie Hunger Buster Snacks you really Must Try - Part II

Looking for a 3 o'clock fix? How about a post-workout energy boost? These healthy, low-calorie snacks can get you through any diet craving.

5 super low calorie snacks that I am digging right now.  My kids love them too!

Don't forget to check out our Part 1 - Healthy Snacks to Try!

Lite Nachos - love me some nachos!  Use baked torilla chips (I use about 8-10), add a small about of shredded low fat cheese.  Pop in microwave for about 10-20 seconds than I go crazy with the veggie toppings! Unlimited tomatoes, cucumber, green onions, red peppers, easy on avocado, a few olives, a little sour cream and salsa.  I try to keep this snack under 200 calories.



Pizza Toast - toast a high fiber/low carb bread or English muffin.  Once toasted add a bit of ketchup top with some cheese and add your favorite topping.  Put oven on broil and place toast until cheese has melted.  Watch for it!  This goes quickly and easily burns!!



Tuna in lettuce wraps - I use Greek yogurt or, if you dont like the tart taste swap out blended cottage cheese or even lite mayo.  I add some curry powder and sometimes grapes and/ or apples, tomatoes chopped up.  Also another time saver is the pouch tuna that you don't have to drain....so easy!



Deli Turkey or Chicken Slices wrapped up in a dill pickle or skim milk cheese stick with a bit of mustard for dip. (If desired)


Healthy Artichoke Dip

Ingredients

1 garlic clove, peeled
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1/2 cup light mayo or vegan mayonnaise
2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
3/4 cup great northern beans
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon powdered mustard
1/4 teaspoon ground white pepper
1 4-ounce can chopped green chiles
2 13.5-ounce cans of artichoke hearts, drained

Preparation

  1. With food processor running, drop in the garlic clove and shallot; process until minced. Turn off processor, scrape down sides of bowl.
  2. Add remaining ingredients except artichokes and process until well combined. Add artichokes and pulse briefly so that small chunks remain.
  3. Serve with rice crackers or your favorite raw veggies.
