Sometimes you just need a little something to help calm that hunger between meals. However, uncontrolled snacking can kill your healthy eating regimen.
Instead of grabbing those high-sugar, high-fat processed snacks, grab a handful of healthy nuts to get you over that between meal hump.
Not all nuts are created equal. Each nut brings something a little different to the table. It's a good idea to make a mixed nut medley. That way you can take advantage of all the nutrients that nuts offer. Choose raw nuts, or if you prefer roasted nut, choose the dry roasted ones and avoid the extra fat from the oil.
There is a difference in the amount of calories that each nut provides, but from best to worst there is only about a 40 calorie per serving difference.
