1. Scrambled Eggs

One large egg, scrambled, contains just 100 calories, and is also a rich source of minerals including protein, potassium, sodium and calcium. Bonus: It makes for a filling breakfast, and is super-easy to cook.

2. Soy Cutlet

A soy cutlet is no doubt delish, and contains around 120 calories which makes it even more tempting. Make sure you bake it with the least amount of oil possible, and avoid eating it with high-cal sauces.

3. Mixed Fruit Salad

A bowl of fresh fruits containing watermelon, pineapple, cantaloupe, strawberry, grapes and kiwi contains around 70 calories, and is packed with goodness of vitamins, magnesium, manganese, zinc and lots more. Its colourful, delicious, and needs just a few minutes of chopping!

4. Popcorn

Popcorn is one of the completely guilt-free snacks that you can keep munching as much as you want. Why? Because a cup of air-popped popcorn contains just 31 calories (can you believe that!) and are 100% whole-grain.

5. Kale Chips

Craving some crispy, salted potato chips? Fret not! Baked kale chips are a great substitute to them, and contain fibers, proteins, iron, potassium...to name a few. One serving of kale chips contains around 50 calories—and did we mention it makes your skin glow?

6. Almonds

Almonds are total weight-loss heroes. 20 almonds contain around 140 calories, and are the slow digesting nuts that provide energy that sustains itself for a long period, making them an ideal, low-fat snack to have between the meals. They are a storehouse of energy, plus they help to build muscle mass during workouts.

7. Cocoa Cinnamon Sugar Roasted Chickpeas

If you're craving something sweet, this high-protein snack will satisfy your sweet tooth and won't kill you with the calories. It's pretty easy to cook—preheat your oven to 400° Fahrenheit, and meanwhile, mix chickpeas with olive oil, cocoa powder, coconut sugar, cinnamon, and salt. Spread this mixture on a tray and roast it for 15 minutes. Give a stir and roast for another 15 minutes.

Take it out of the oven and let it cool at the room temperature for some time. Voila! Your super-healthy snack is ready. It contains around 144 calories per serving of 100 grams (along with fibre and protein).

8. Greek Yoghurt

When mixed with a tablespoon of honey or chopped fruits, Greek yoghurt makes a great dessert (with just 90 calories in half a cup). It has high-protein content and is free from hidden additives or sweeteners as well.
