I came up with these 21 best low calorie snacks while I was experiencing the bad case of the late night munchies.

The great thing about these low calorie snacks is that you don’t have to eat these at night. You can incorporate them throughout the day in between meals to keep you from overeating.

I get really hungry before lunch and dinner and that’s when I like to add these low calorie snacks!

21 Best Low Calorie Snacks

1. Quaker Rice Cakes and Crisps

Okay, so funny story about Quaker rice crisps. My favorite flavor is the Sweet & Spicy Chili and it’s literally always out of stock. So I decided to see if Amazon had them and to my surprise, they did.

Guess who ordered a whole box of 12? Me! The hardest part was trying to refrain myself from demolishing the entire box.

2. Oikos Triple Zero Greek Yogurt

I lived on Oikos Triple Zero Greek Yogurt during my bikini competition days.

Here’s why:

  • 0 added sugar
  • 15g of protein
  • 0 artificial sweeteners
  • 0 fat

They carry a good selection of flavors. And I’ve even seen some individual packs for like $1 at Walmart that comes with an extra pack of toppings to mix with.

3. Dannon Light & Fit Greek Yogurt

I prefer this over the Triple Zero yogurt because it’s much lighter in texture. My favorites are the peach and strawberry cheesecake flavors.

Each yogurt cup has 80 calories and 12g of protein.

4. Apple Slices with Peanut Butter

Apples by itself make a great snack. But I love dipping my apple slices in peanut butter. You do have to be careful not to eat too much peanut butter because it’s high in fat.

5. Cuties

Cuties or Halos- the tiny oranges that your local grocery store sells. I could eat these all day, every day.

6. Fried Eggs

Fried eggs are one of my favorite things to eat. Eggs in general are so lean and fills you up. You can always find a low-calorie or zero-calorie sauce like hot sauce or sriracha to add to your eggs.

7. Blueberries

Blueberries are the king of antioxidant foods. They’re low in calories but high in nutrients. Read 10 Proven Health Benefits of Blueberries.

8. Protein Shake

You don’t have to mix your protein shakes with water. Make it enjoyable and add some almond milk into the mix.

My favorite protein shake brand is ISO-100 Dymatize and if you have GNC rewards- they carry it there.

9. Grapes

Grapes are super convenient snacks. You don’t have to peel them, cut them, or prepare them. You just rinse and eat.

10. Fresh Vegetables

Cucumbers, broccoli, carrots, bell peppers dipped in fat-free or lite ranch.

There’s a lot of dipping sauces that have a low calorie, low sugar, zero sugar, or lite versions.

11. Halo Top Ice Cream

You know how an average pint of ice cream is like 1000 calories?

Well a pint of Halo Top is like 200-400 calories.

They have a wide range of flavors. It’s not as thick and creamy as regular ice cream but it’s a great much healthier alternative.

12. Special K Protein Cereal

I love cereal but not the raging amount of sugar that comes on them.

The Special K Protein Cereal has 15g of protein per serving. That’s quite a bit. And lower amount of sugar than your average box of cereal.

13. Assorted Nuts

Just like peanut butter – nuts are high in fat. So be careful overeating them.

14. Strawberries

15. Cherry Tomatoes

16. Edamame

17. Chickpea

18. Beef Sticks

Or beef jerky with low sodium.

19. Homemade Popsicles

Make it with zero sugar gatorade or any healthy drink of your choice. A creamsicle made out of a protein shake wouldn’t be a bad idea. You can get popsicle molds with sticks here!

20. Fresh Avocado

Fresh avocado on a whole grain toast with a fried egg and fresh sliced tomatoes. Can you say yum?

21. Hard-Boiled Eggs

Here’s how I always boiled my eggs before buying a hard boiled egg cooker. I think the key is to let it sit in cold water for a few minutes prior to peeling the shell.

  • Boil on high for about 10 minutes
  • Then turn it down to medium for 5 minutes
  • Take the pot to the sink and run cold water
  • Let the eggs sit in cold water for a few minutes
  • Then peel the egg under cold water

Do you know what’s actually super good with hard-boiled eggs? Hot sauce. And hot sauce has basically no calories which is even better.

Low Calorie Snacks

Low calorie snacks don’t have to be flavorless. There’s a lot of healthier alternatives to foods we eat on a daily basis. And that’s why I hope these 21 best low calorie snacks gives you some ideas on incorporating healthier versions of foods you already eat!
