Low Calorie Snacks Good For The Body And Health

By Lloyd Straselhoff

Everyone is always looking for delicious and nutritious low calorie snacks that can dampen the hunger and yet satisfy the palate. Unfortunately, the low calorie snacks have gotten a bad reputation as being boring, bland, and highly unsatisfactory and again, boring. Why? Because we have been led to believe that low calorie snacks only comprise of fruits and raw vegetables without any seasonings.

There are a lot of these snacks available in supermarkets and groceries that claim LITE and LOW SODIUM as well as SUGAR FREE and FAT FREE. Unfortunately, research revealed that a lot of these snacks were mislabelled and were doing more harm than good to the consumers which made the FDA and the consumer advocates to make more stringent measures to correct the flaws. This makes it difficult for some who wish to maintain normal levels of glucose in their bodies and makes it harder to record accurate details in their blood sugar chart.

If you have a creative mind then it’s easy to create your own low calorie snacks instead of relying on ones bought from supermarkets and health shops. You can use blackberry jam to help sweeten your cup of tea or anything else that happens to take your fancy. Let your favourite tastes guide you and see where the journey takes you.

How about trying some new salad recipe ideas with a mixture of fruits and vegetables on top of chicken and a fresh Italian style dressing? Or get to your local bakery for some fresh brown bread and create a mouth watering sandwich with fillets of duck and a variety of herbs and spices.

Just because your new diet is low calorie this does not have to mean that you can’t get your daily fix of caffeine. Although the thought of a cup of decaffeinated coffee might not get your taste buds tingling, give it a try. You might find that it’s better than you had first imagined. After a few cups you may discover that you don’t want to go back to regular coffee.

There are a lot of low calorie snacks that I am very sure you can make up by yourself. Don’t just rely on those potato chips that are labelled LITE. Snacks does not mean junk food, please remember that. Snacks means to eat something ‘light’ in between meals to stave off the hunger pains. Oh and that reminds me! Water, lots of water will also dampen the hunger pains. Experimentation is the key to good eating and that is how the great chef’s do it. Why not you? Why not create low calorie snacks for you and your family and enjoy a healthy living?
