1. Sweet Potato Chips
With fewer than 100 calories a serving, these chips satisfy both sweet and salty cravings. Unlike greasy, over-salted potato chips from a bag, homemade baked sweet potato chips put you in control of salt and fat content while giving you more fiber than white potatoes.
2. Avocado Dip
A quarter cup of this avocado dip comes with a measly 59 calories, leaving plenty of room for veggie sticks and pita chips for dipping. Made with jalapenos and Greek yogurt, this dip delivers healthy fats, protein and metabolism-boosting spice.
3. Chili Lime Pumpkin Seeds
Pumpkin seeds are high in protein, zinc, magnesium and vitamin E. You can eat a handful of these seeds, baked dry and spiked with heat, for a clean-eating snack.
