Ideas are good and look interresting, however, not all of the pages loaded fully and no recipes were gained. Would think that this information is possibly something to assist me with my diet, but unless this site failure is cleared up, I will never know..

Nuts of any kind are a binge food for me. Just looking at the pictures can set me off. YIKES!

Please make thiese slideshows in a printable verison, I like to print and post near my kitchen.

Just as a helpful hint reminder, so when I am in one of those moods for a snack, I can read it and put it to use.

This is a "nuts" slideshow... There are a lot of snack slideshows, just pick something different or omit the almonds from these recipes and/or replace with something that you are not allergic to.

Hey most of these have almonds to which I'm allergic! More variety would be appreciated.
