Best Healthy Snack for weight loss

By  |  0 Comments

If there is one healthy snack to always keep on hand, you might want to make it a bag of almonds. The humble nut is rich in protein, healthy monounsaturated fats, and fiber—a winning combo that can improve your health and aid in weight loss.

Daily almond eaters tend to have more nutrient-rich diets, better appetite and blood sugar control that fights weight gain, and reduced abdominal fat and waist circumference compared to people who chow down a carb-heavy snacks of equal calories.

Of course you can stash them in your car and eat on the run—they’re not messy and can sit for days without going stale—but snacking on plain almonds honestly gets boring.

Here are a few ideas that make this power Healthy Snack more versatile in your diet:

Crust: Place almonds in a plastic bag and vigorously hammer into a fine powder. (You can also do this with a food processor.) Mix in some plain breadcrumbs and use the mixture as a coating on fish or chicken.

Stir-fry: Sub almond butter in for any stir-fry sauce recipe calling for peanut butter, suggests Braddock. Or create your own by adding almond butter, soy sauce, brown sugar, rice wine vinegar, and ginger. Serve with rice and a heap of vegetables.

Cover: For an antioxidant-packed dessert, we suggest chocolate-covered almonds. Melt 70% dark chocolate in a large bowl in the microwave. Toss in almonds and stir. Spread on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and cool.

Drink: In a blender, combine almond milk, almond butter, chocolate protein powder, and a cup of ice for an afternoon snack that will carry you to dinner.
