Looking for a tasty snack food that’s actually okay for you? Nuts.
I love cashews, macadamia etc. Don’t know what nuts you would like? Go to a large supermarket that has those containers that you can shovel out nuts and pay by the pound. Just take 2 or 3 and you’ll get a taste, that’s how I found out I like macadamia nuts. It’s cheap and effective!
But the downside to nuts is they tend to be heavily salted. I personally hate salt but I know I’m odd. Luckily a lot of companies that sell nuts now sell either low-salt or “flavored with natural sea salt” variations which I find much more palatable and my Doctor probably likes since it has much less sodium.
What I like about nuts is I can eat a lot of them, then feel full (not like eating a package of Oreos or something like that) and they taste good and are good for me. I got half a closet shelf full of all kinds of nuts so I leave them around the house along with bottles of water so when an urge to eat hits, I either get the healthy stuff in front of my face or I need to go get something unhealthy… thus taking advantage of my optimal use of energy (most people call it laziness).
Thanks to Kat Berkey on the Facebook Group for inspiring me to post about the awesomeness of nuts in one’s overall fitness plan.
