Saturday Snack Spotlight – Nuts

Almonds, walnuts, pecans, peanuts, and cashews contain the healthy monounsaturated fats that lower cholesterol and reduce the risk of heart disease. And because they’re packed with protein and “good” fat, they won’t raise blood sugar as much as crackers or pretzels do. Because many nuts are high in calories (almonds are the lowest), stick to an ounce, or about the amount that will fit in the palm of your hand.

Diabetic Friendly Nuts

My husband likes to keep a container of cashews on our living room coffee table – I will dabble here and there, but I don’t think nuts get enough credit. I think many people just don’t view them as a snack, they are more of a topping or something. But they make a great snack, give it a try! 🙂
