“Pistachios are a great snack all by themselves,” dit Pincus. “Thirty equal about 100 calories and they take a while to eat.” Other great nuts to grab a handful of: almonds, walnuts, and cashews. All three of those have “good” unsaturated, heart-healthy fats, brain-boosting Omega-3 fatty acids, and fiber. If you reach for those nuts, just watch your portion size since one handful has about 175 calories.
If nuts aren’t your thing, Pincus suggests trying roasted broad beans (which you might know as fava beans). They are packed with protein and iron, come in many different flavors, have only 36 calories per handful.
8. A smoothie
“Smoothies are tricky because they can be a light and healthy snack or a calorie disaster depending on what’s in them,” dit Pincus. To make a healthy, 200-calorie smoothie, try blending any kind of berries and a banana with low-fat milk or Greek yogurt. For more low-calorie smoothie ideas, click here.
