Fruit, Low in Calories So When Dieting You Can Eat a Lot of Food For Minimal Energy Values
Oh my - it's healthy frozen fruit! An entire 20 ounce bag of frozen strawberries contains less than 200 calories.
And for any other fruit that you er....pick, caloric content is minimal as long as the fruit isn't sweetened with sugar. The added bonus for frozen fruit and dieters?
It takes a long while to eat frozen fruit. In addition, you can add no calorie sweetener if you like your fruit a bit sweeter - for zero calories of course.
I enjoy slicing a banana into thin slices and placing them on wax paper before transporting them to my freezer.
About thirty minutes later I have a cold, delicious and satisfying snack for minimal calories. And banana is rich in B-vitamins and potassium.
Did we mention that frozen fruit is packed with vitamins? Let's take a look at the nutritional values for unsweetened strawberries. They contain about 50 calories per cup, about 1/2 gram of protein, are virtually fat free while rich in potassium content at 220 milligrams. They are also low in sodium at 3 milligrams and contain a significant amount of dietary fiber - over three impressive grams. They even offer calcium benefits at 24 milligrams.
Frozen Vegetables, Enjoy About 4 Cups of Mixed Vegetables for About 150 Calories
When we're not in the mood for fruit, what about frozen vegetables? A medium-size bag typically holds on 150 calories. That's quite a lot of food - and it's food that you can feel great about eating because it's very healthy.
