Satisfy your salt tooth and get a protein boost!
Nuts are a great source of protein, especially when you’re on-the-go or you’re looking for an afternoon snack. Personally, I’ve never hit my 4pm snack attack and said, "gee, a piece of boneless, skinless chicken breast would hit the spot right now." But a few salty cashews will! The problem for me is cashews go down too easily as do peanuts, almonds, Brazil nuts, and pecans and that healthy handful becomes a dietary danger! Luckily, after a side dish of roasted Brussels sprouts with pistachios on the Thanksgiving table I have a new (safer) obsession!
