Tasty Heart-Healthy Snacks


For all you nutaholics out there (myself included!), here’s some good news: research shows the “good” monounsaturated fats found in almonds may help to lower cholesterol levels and keep your heart pumping strong. If you’re looking for a decadent treat, try Marcona almonds. This Spanish variety packs the same health punch as regular almonds, but have an extra buttery, sweet taste. One ounce (one handful, about 24 almonds) clocks in at 160 calories. Snack away!
