Snack-spiration! It may seem simple, but a handful of almonds is all you need to get through from breakfast to lunch. When you’re working out so hard, you don’t want to undo your hard work with daily unhealthy snacks. Why you should be eating a handful of almonds daily:
• Healthy nutritious snack loaded with minerals, vitamin E, calcium, magnesium and potassium.
• Great source of protein and fibre.
• Promotes heart health.
• Prevents weight gain. Keeps you feeling full and satisfied so you won’t have the urge to overeat.
Why you should chose raw over roasted: Both raw and roasted almonds pack a high dose of nutrients and minerals. However, raw almonds have more naturally occurring beneficial fats, as some are lost in the roasting process. Dry roasted almonds have the same amount of calories as raw almonds, while almonds roasted in oil contain slightly more calories.
