Nuts are a great snack food, especially for people on the go.  Nuts, often feared due to their high calorie and fat content, are a valuable heart healthy snack. In addition, nuts are extremely helpful for keeping blood sugar levels stabilized throughout the day, an important key to weight loss and increased energy. Use a variety of nuts as each provides different beneficial nutrients. Try making your own trail mix with a combination of nuts, seeds, and dried fruit. A handful of nuts are an appropriate serving size. For a free consultation on blood sugar maintenance, contact me here. To gain additional insight into nuts, click here.
