The low calorie vegetable to eat to your fill

The low calorie vegetable to eat to your fill

Are you on a diet and are you hungry? Yet there is a very easy trick to avoid eating less and still feel not very full: increase the dose of vegetables on our plates , and also use vegetables as snacks.

But which vegetables? It is necessary to choose vegetables with few calories, and so do the vegetables. This also allows us to abound with portions considerably: the difference between 100 and 300 grams of cucumbers is only 32 calories. But if we eat 300 grams of cucumbers  it will be much easier to feel full!

But now let’s see all the low-calorie vegetables that can help us eat our fill and still stay on a diet.


These vegetables can also be mixed together, both cooked and raw, without looking at the differences between calories per group because they are minimal, and thus obtain light but satiating dishes rich in fiber.

We remind you that vegetables that can be eaten raw should be eaten raw as much as possible: they nourish the good intestinal flora, provide us with enzymes, mineral salts and vitamins, they satisfy us much more.

  1. Vegetables, roots and vegetables below or equal to 20 calories per 100 grams: beets, chard, cucumbers, celery, escarole or endive, courgettes, radishes, tomatoes, Chinese cabbage, asparagus, lettuce, agretti, thistles.
  2. Vegetables, roots and vegetables below or equal to 30 calories per 100 grams: cauliflower, mushrooms, eggplant, chicory, pumpkin, spinach, rocket, songino, valerian, savoy cabbage, radicchio, cabbage, kohlrabi.
  3. Vegetables below or equal to 40 calories per 100 grams:  peppers, broccoli, fennel, rutabaga, kale, onions, green beans, spring onions, nuptials.

    Instead, here are the vegetables that we can also weigh because they are more sugary or starchy. 
  4. Vegetables under 40 and 50 calories: artichokes, carrots, celeriac, beets, snow peas, Brussels sprouts.
  5. Vegetables over 50 calories: parsnips, Jerusalem artichoke, Jerusalem artichoke, salsify, horseradish.
    After these, obviously there are the tubers, generally all below 100 calories (between 80 and 100). Potatoes, sweet potatoes, cassava and other tubers or roots should not be demonized, on the contrary: they can be an excellent low-calorie substitute for a first course based on pasta, rice or cereals.
    Think that 50 grams of rice are the equivalent in calories of 200 grams of potatoes. And that potatoes have a greater satiating power.
