3 unexpectedly low- calorie healthy snacks

Dark chocolate

Dark chocolate with a substantial amount of cocoa is not only delectable, it has a multitude of health benefits. Cocoa is chock-full of minerals such as magnesium, phosphorus, zinc. A 100g bar of chocolate contains over 60% of the recommended daily amount of iron. Dark chocolate promotes heart health by improving circulation and flexibility of blood vessels. Ultimately and unbelievable dark chocolate can actually help you lose weight. A little square of the treat triggers the brain’s ‘feeling full’ mechanisms and cause us to consume less food.

Peanut Butter

This dense spread might not be the first thing that comes to mind where health is concerned but a little bit of peanut butter goes a long way. Apart from its unrivalled versatility it is packed with protein. This also explains why it is a common ingredient in protein shakes, it helps build and repair muscle. Peanut butter is nutrient-rich with calcium, iron and zinc all in the mix. Slather some on some bananas for a quick snack, but keep consumption under 2 tablespoons a day as moderation is key.


These can do more than fill our tummies during the morning rush. Smoothies can be taken at any time of the day with any meal or as a standalone snack. We can put almost anything that can be juiced into a smoothie. All we have to do is choose a fruit, a vegetable, a liquid and a nut or seed and we are good to go. Keep it in the fridge for a couple of days to grab a quick snack.
