150 calories or less: Don`t let snacks become an additional meal. Limit yourself to 150 calories or less at each snack time.
Veggie salads: Avoid the tendency to overeat a low fat snack because you think you are saving on calories. You may have 1 cup of cooked or 2 cups of raw non-starchy vegetables (carrots, radish, broccoli, cauliflower, cucumber, tomatoes, peas, etc) with a fat-free or low fat dressing such as low-fat buttermilk, chat masala, lime juice, chilli and vinegar.
Nutty snacks: Nuts such as almonds, walnuts, pecans and cashews are rich in monounsaturated fats that lower cholesterol and reduce the risk of heart disease. They make for an excellent snacking option because they are full of protein and good fat and will not raise your blood sugar level. A handful of groundnuts a day or half a tablespoon of peanut butter on a slice of whole wheat bread is an excellent snack for those who love nuts. You can also try about 30 grams of mixed or plain unsalted nuts.
Fruity snacks: Fruits such as apples, bananas and grapes are low in fat, high in fiber and have natural sugars. So they will not cause your blood glucose levels to fluctuate.
