Just like sweet cravings, salt cravings are a real threat because they can spoil your plans to stick to a weight loss diet.
But what if you managed to trick your taste buds with some tasty snacks?
This will certainly satisfy your incessant desire to munch on something salty.
Below you will find the top 5 healthy snacks that can cancel your salt cravings and keep your body in shape at the same time.
Eating a handful of roasted almonds is an inspired choice when the salt cravings hit. You will not add too much calories to your diet. Make sure you eat them slowly to prolong the whole experience and enjoy the rich taste. Even better than roasted almonds are raw almonds, but the salt will not stick on them.
Stay away from other varities such as honey-roasted or caramel-roasted almonds. They are packed with calories and are not a healthy choice.
This is another amazing snack that will help you escape from the moments you feel the desperate need of eating something salty and thus, ruin your diet. The best popcorn is the air-popped one that has been only lightly salted and contains no heavily buttered flavors.
Potato crisps or chips can be really yummy but they are also very fattening. If you are like me, then you must really enjoy eating potato crisps. So, I decided that I should not give them up completely. The alternative I found was to bake them. They are still tasty but the number of calories is much lower.
Cucumbers with sea salt
Cucumber are vegetables which can be found in summer. Therefore, if they are in season you should consume as many as possible. Cut the cucumbers in slices and sprinkle a little sea salt on them. Do not exaggerate with the salt because a little bit can go a very long way!
Carrots and Fat-Free Ranch
Baby carrots dipped in low-fat, low-calorie ranch dressing can definitely give you the sensation of satiety and stop your salty cravings in an instant. So, pick this alternative if you want to enjoy a very healthy snack, packed with vitamins and useful nutrients.
