4 Snacks That Don’t Involve Putting on the Pounds

There’s nothing like munching on a piece of cake while watching a movie to add to its indulgence or living on a bar (maybe 10) chocolate on a lazy Sunday to sweeten the day. Or that ice cream that cools you off on a hot summer’s day. I mean, it’s snacking; one of the many joys of the world. BUT, we’re also aware that, more than anything, it’s a guilty pleasure as long as our health is concerned. From, high cholesterol to weight gain, some of these small foods don’t actually work in our favor. So let’s take a moment to look into the healthy snacks that will leave you with a clear conscience anytime to sink your teeth in them.

Frozen fruit

Icy mango slices, pineapple chunks or cherries are like healthy Popsicles. Freeze any fruit – the less watery, the better so it will hold up in an Esky on a hot summer’s day. Frozen fruits have antioxidant-type compounds – including Vitamin C, polyphenols, anthocyanins, lutein and beta-carotene.

Watermelon juice

The downside to drinking juice instead of eating whole fruit is that you can easily ingest 10 slices of liquid watermelon, where you might chew only three. Drinking a glass of watermelon juice before a meal is great for hydration, high in nutrition and very low in calories – all helpful for losing weight.
Ceviche: The fresh fish, lime juice and olive oil combo is like the unicorn of snacks: a rare protein-heavy, low-carb find. The amount of fast carbohydrates is low. So ceviche doesn’t cause extra energy accumulation and is good food if one wants to be careful with one’s weight.

White wine spritzer

An 80-20 wine- soda mix keeps you hydrated and lowers the calories you’d consume in one glass. Club soda contains zero calories, according to the USDA’s MyFood-a-media website. Using a 2 oz. of lemonade in place of club soda adds 25 calories, so a spritzer made with wine and lemonade contains about 121 calories. Definitely for keeps!

Ice-cream cone

Sugar trumps a doughy waffle because it’s lower in kilojoules and also holds less ice cream. In one serving, you will be consuming, calories: 130, fat: 3g, carbs: 22g, protein: 2g. It’s a win-win!


You see, you’re not being encouraged to say goodbye to your beloved snack. Just be mindful with the ones you choose and you’ll have one more reason to eat with a clear conscience.
