Snack time can be problematic. Meetings that go long, traffic jams and never-ending time constraints leave us dashing from one activity to another, often on an empty stomach.
A lone piece of fruit never seems to cut it, yogurt needs refrigeration and the last time I walked into a cocktail party with chocolate protein bar stuck to my teeth was, well, the last time. Convenience stores are often less than convenient and skipping my snack all together is not an option.
On-the-go, in-between-mealtime munchers get ready to celebrate; the almond snack tin has arrived.
No sticky fingers or unsightly wrappers to contend with. Each reusable container holds the perfect portion of heart-healthy almonds. Just pop the unobtrusive little tin in your pocket or purse, and you will never be without a quick, nutritionally sound snack again.
Compared to other tree nuts, nutrient-dense almonds rank the highest in protein. A one-ounce serving of raw, naturally gluten-free almonds contains six grams of protein, four grams of fiber and just a single gram of saturated fat. It’s the perfect amount of crunchy goodness to keep your engine running without slowing you down.
Did you know that raw almonds have a shelf life of two years? Individually sold packs of anything can be cost prohibitive, so save money, buy in bulk and put a sizable dent in your munching budget.
Healthy snacking is a great way to control appetite and manage weight. Unfortunately even the consummate snacker, like myself, struggles with hitting the mark and overindulges or settles for a less than optimum nibble.
Take the guesswork out of snack time. For a measly investment — tins cost just $1.87 each — you’ll have taste, convenience and nutrition literally at your fingertips.
