5 Snacks Under 200 Calories

Contrary to popular belief, eating snacks can be beneficial. By eating snacks, you can help minimize cravings and prevent overeating.

Whether your goal is to lose weight or maintain your current weight, you need to have an estimate of how many calories you eat in order to achieve your desired results.

We suggest that you try these five delicious, low-calorie snacks.

1. Kale Chips

Kale retains its nutrients when it's made into chips. It's rich in fiber, vitamins A, B & C, and antioxidants.

It's also easy to prepare. Wash the kale and dry it by using a salad spinner or patting them dry with a clean kitchen towel. Then, lay them on parchment paper. Sprinkle it with spices or healthy seasonings before you bake them in the oven. The result? Healthy, savory and crispy chips!

Make sure you don't add too much oil so you don't go over 200 calories.

Kale chips recipe:

  • 28 g of kale
  • 1 tbsp Olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Black pepper
