foods that are basically calorie-free

Celery


When a food is 95% water, it’s a solid sign there aren’t many calories involved. Such is the case with celery, which has only about 15 calories per cup

Chard


Chard, or Swiss chard, is a leafy green that’s similar to spinach but is actually a member of the beet family. It contains only 35 calories in a cup

Chili peppers


They have even fewer calories. Jalapenos, for example, have about 13 calories in a half-cup serving, while serrano peppers have about 14 calories in the same serving size.

Cucumbers


where cucumbers are used in place of tortilla chips, crackers, or other foods is for good reason—a cup of cucumber clocks in at just 16 calories

Fennel


Fennel is botanically in the carrot family but tastes like anise or black licorice. If that jives with you, you’re in luck, as every cup has only 27 calories

Grapefruit


grapefruits are low in calories (37 per half-fruit) but filling due to their high water content, and are a solid source of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and fiber.

Kale


Kale packs a slightly more plentiful portion of calories compared to other leafy greens, with a one-cup serving of chopped kale containing about 33 calories

Lettuce


An entire cup of lettuce—bet it iceberg, bibb, red leaf, romaine, etc.—contains fewer than 10 calories. They’re mostly water

Popcorn


A low-calorie snack that’s not just plain ol’ veggies. When you do, reach for a handful of popcorn. A one-cup serving of this fluffy treat contains just 31 calories

Radishes


Radishes, a root vegetable, can keep you looking ravishing—or at least help you look healthy. A one-cup serving clocks in at just 18 calories

Spinach


Thankfully, one cup of spinach contains only 7 calories, as well as your daily requirement of vitamins K, A, and C.

Tomatoes


One juicy, average-sized tomato totals just 22 calories. Or, if you’re a fan of cherry tomatoes, you can have a whole cup for that same calories
