What to Eat Wednesday! 8-10

Today is What to Eat Wednesday! This is the day that I share something that is easy (and delicious) to add to your regular diet that will improve your eating habits. This week, the item of the week is Almonds!

Almonds are such a great snack- full of healthy fats and lots of vitamins. Now, when you're choosing them- be sure to choose natural almonds that haven't been fried or salted.

Some of the note-worthy benefits of almonds I found were: 
*Reduces your risk for heart disease
*Protects you from diabetes
*Full of manganese (keeps your bones healthy, and helps digestion) and Vitamin E
*Super good for your heart!
*Helps you speed up your metabolism and lose weight

There's a lot of bang for your buck in almonds. Add some as a snack everyday to enjoy all the benefits!
