Photos Highlight How Different 100 Calories Looks in Servings of Healthy Foods

There's something satisfying about simple math to effect order from disorder. This photo series is the perfect example: in 23 shots, Food Network has provided a visual guide to 100-calorie servings of a variety of healthy food, loosely assembled on a well-lit marble counter-top.

If you're counting your macros for nutritional reasons, the images might help you keep track of your daily intake. Otherwise, however, the collection is an aesthetically pleasing nod to the vast variety within any wholesome diet, encompassing a mouthwatering range of colors, textures, and flavors. Much of the featured food is plant-based, which provides an extra reminder of the almost magical diversity in fruits and veggies made entirely by nature.

For some of the selections, the calculations are delightfully tidy—for example, 100 raspberries equal 100 calories. For others, it only takes a small but satisfying handful to hit the 100 calorie mark. Click through the collection below to see how your favorite snacks stack up.
