Pickles Pickles are crunchy and exquisite but did you know pickles are nutritious. Naturally packed with vitamins, pickles are a fat free and low calorie snack. In fact, the average-sized dill spear is only 15 calories!

What to Watch Out For

Almost all pickles you obtain in grocery stores have artificial food coloring. They contain a yellowish tint to them that has been added through the use of chemical colors. This isn't a natural ingredient and so it is something you wish to avoid purchasing. Instead, you want to buy completely natural pickles.

A complete jar of pickles may provide you only 50 calories or so and yet they can be quite satisfying and take up a considerable amount of space in your stomach, thereby turning off your appetite cravings.

You shouldn't buy pickles containing any added sugars or artificial colors. Some pickles are, believe it or not, loaded with sugar. They're more like candied cucumbers than pickles. As an advice you should read the ingredients labels to be sure what you're getting.

Apropos, while you're eating pickles, it's an ample time to take some calcium and mineral supplements, too. The acidity of the pickles will accelerate the absorption of calcium.
