Healthy 100 Calorie Snacks

mixed nutsIf you are currently on a very strict, nasty low-cal diet, having some options in regards to snacking is always a good idea. 100 calories are not that much to begin with; but at the same time they are more than enough if you know the right foods. For the purpose of this article, I am going to omit the fact that a 100 calorie snack could damage your diet plan if not executed correctly. It is unadvisable to eat much fat if it is just a snack – fat tends to be broken down more slowly than carbohydrates – and there could be some over-lapping involved later on. Also, your snacks shouldn’t be sugary in any way, shape or form. It is not about weight gain or some nonsense like that – it is just a matter of insulin reuptake, that’s all. You have to be careful when eating anything that is fruit – including apples, oranges, pears, grapes etc. I know that you were expecting something of the sort ‘an apple and a glass of orange juice’, but that is just silly. Eating an apple and a glass of orange juice is just the same as eating half a bar of chocolate and a can of Coke – bad, bad, bad! This is because fruits have a lot of sugar inside them – yes, sugar! This for of sugar is called fructose, and much like saccharose (table sugar) it spikes your blood-sugar levels and make a monkey out of your pancreas. I will suggest snacks that are much more healthier than even 10 apples, believe it or not!


Tomato – Ham Rice Cakes


There is nothing more tasty than an organically grown rice cake to fulfill your gastronomic desires! Only buy brown organic rice cakes – for they are better for you than the regular ones – a lot better. Adding a slice of tomato and a slice of ham will boost the experience. Here is what you are getting in return:


  • 1 slice of ham – 46 calories
  • 1 slice of tomato – 4 calories
  • 1 rice cake – 35 calories
  • Total – 85 calories


Deviled Egg


I don’t know who came up with the whole – “eggs are bad for you” nonsense. It is true that an average egg has about 62% of your daily value in cholesterol, but eating 5-6 eggs (with yokes) a week won’t cause your arteries to clog – that is more than certain. This recipe is beyond simple; all you have to do is hard boil an egg – 10 min at least! Cut the egg in half while being careful not to damage the whites. Scoop the yoke and place it in a small bowl. Mix in 1 tablespoon of mustard and herbs of your choice. Mash the mixture and place it back into the egg. This dish is best served cold.


  • 1 large chicken egg – 78 calories
  • 1 tablespoon of mustard – 3 calories
  • Total – 81 calories


Mixed Nuts


Now I would recommend this particular snack if I didn’t know its amazing properties for reducing hunger and promoting good health. If you wish to keep your slender physique, I would not recommend eating more than 10-15 grams of mixed nuts at a time! Maybe even less, depending on what kind of nuts you like the most!
