Going nuts on account of the nuts
Tuesday, March 13, 2007
Okay, so I've always heard that if you want a good, hearty snack to eat some nuts. I love nuts so this is no problem for me. The problem is the recommendation of eating nuts should come with the caviat, "if you normally snack on chips," because, yes, nuts are better than chips (they have more protein) but you can only have a tiny handful before you go -- well, nuts -- with the calories. Case in point, my snack yesterday. Sure, I had the can in front of me and probably didn't need all those nuts to fill up, but, darn it, I can't just have half a dozen nuts! I love nuts! I think when I finish my can of nuts and bag of pistachios, I may have to find another snack. Any recommendations?
