Drain and dry your canned chickpeas. Then, coat them in olive oil and your favourite spices. Our favourite combination: brown sugar and Cajun spice mix.

Substitute your usual raw vegetables with a few pickles. Not only are they low in calories, but they will also satisfy your salty tooth. But the key is always moderation since they can quickly increase your daily sodium (salt) intake.
