Expert Tips

Almonds supply omega-3 fatty acids that may help reduce risk of heart disease. They're loaded with unsaturated fats so don't go nuts with your portions

Fill a half-dozen snack bags with 1/2-cup amounts of this snack mix, and stash close to the door. It's the perfect treat to take anywhere!
