Hands down, almonds. They’re convenient, they help stabilize blood sugar and lower cholesterol and just a handful will reduce appetite so much that you’ll eat smaller meals, resulting in a net reduction of calories. His suggestion? Try having a handful of almonds 15 or 20 minutes before a meal.
To get the most out of your almond experience:
- Buy organic unflavored almonds
- Soak overnight
- Drain water and place soaked almonds in a food dehydrator for 5-8 hours or until crunch
- Don’t have a dehydrator? Place the soaked almonds on a cookie sheet and bake at 200 degrees F for 2 hours.
