Nibble on nuts instead of chips and cookies!
This is a no-brainer. We love the sugar laden cookies and candies, with or without nuts. Try switching to just nuts. For an added bonus, switch to no salt added nuts. Be creative in adding more of them to your diet. Sprinkle a few in your morning cereal, or top off your yogurt and berries. Carry some in small quantities for snacks and energy food. Bonus – they travel well too! Although we only hear about the benefits of almonds and walnuts, health benefits derive from all nuts. Go for the lower fat ones. Great for children’s snacks alone or mixed with dried fruit or dark chocolate chips. Keep nuts in the refrigerator in the summer to avoid oils in them from becoming rancid.
