Having an emergency stash of nut mix in your car, purse, desk, etc can be the difference between a healthy snack and resorting to fast food or a vending machine. Making smart food choices becomes increasingly difficult the hungrier you get and the less healthy options you have readily available. Make those food choices easier by having a snack like this on hand at all times.
I know I know… nuts are loaded with calories which means steer clear.. false! Nuts are loaded with fiber, fiber makes you feel full, which as a result suppresses your appetite. When you don’t feel famished its easier to make smart food choice! If that doesn’t convince you then look at the research – academic research studies have found there to be an inverse relationship between nut intake and BMI. Coincidence? I think not.
