You’ve probably heard of the common expression, ‘you are what you eat.’ What we choose to consume often has a substantial effect on both our weight and our complexion. If you want to look your best this summer, be sure to add these healthy and low-calorie snacks to your diet:

  • Apples and cinnamon: This Fourth of July, skip out on the homemade apple pie in favor of a fresh apple. To add some flavor and create a healthy dessert, simply sprinkle some cinnamon on sliced apples.
  • Juice ice-cubes: “Freeze your favorite 100-percent fruit juice (or your own homemade fruit puree) in an ice cube tray, then pop a cube or two into a glass of plain seltzer for a more naturally-flavored refreshing spritzer,” suggests a blogger for The Huffington Post. “Since an ice cube is about an ounce, you can add three cubes of pomegranate juice for just 45 calories.”
  • Shrimp cocktail: If you’re craving a decadent snack this summer, make shrimp cocktail your go-to. In addition to being delicious, this appetizer is low in calories. Eight large shrimp combined with two tablespoons of cocktail sauce is only 100 calories. Plus, this seafood is a great source of protein!
