Related Articles

When you’re trying to eat healthy, a rumbling tummy between meals can often be your downfall. How can you stay full to avoid snacking? Try eating these veggies at meal times.


1. Zucchini

Zucchini has a lot of water in it, as well as fiber. It’s also far more versatile than you may realize. You can use it as a base of your dinner in a Zucchini Boat like this one or you can replace your carbs by making zoodles.


2. Cucumber

There is more to a cucumber than just a silly accessory to your spa day. Cucumbers are an easy-to-eat veggie because you can put them on a salad, eat them sliced as a snack or use them in smoothies. Cucumbers are made up of about 90 percent water, which helps keep you full.


3. Broccoli

If there’s a veggie you aren’t getting enough of, it’s broccoli. Not only is it very low-cal, but it’s full of vitamin C and fiber. Fiber helps keep you fuller longer, so add this as a side dish to your dinner to avoid late-night snacking. Try serving this Weight Loss Creamy Cauliflower and Broccoli Soup or make Baked Broccoli Tots for a side dish.


4. Celery

Celery is another veggie that is made up of a lot of water, which will help fill your tummy. It’s also super crunchy and takes longer to eat, making your brain think it’s eating a lot more than it really is. It’s a good snack or addition to any packed lunch.


5. Carrots

While low in calories, this crunchy veggie has a lot of water and fiber in it, both of which work together to fill up your stomach. We recommend adding some carrots to your lunch in place of crackers or other less-healthy snacks.


6. Spinach

A large serving of spinach is low in calories but high in nutrition. It’s a great veggie to eat when you want a big meal without going over your daily allotment of calories.
