A Handful A Day

If you're thinking about losing weight and want a good snack idea, then consider almonds.

You will also need to know how to get the perfect portion. All you have to do is reach out and grab a handful. That’s right, one good-sized handful, or about 23 almonds, is the ideal daily portion recommended by the Dietary Guidelines for Americans.

1 handful = 23 almonds = 1 ounce

If you are like me and suffer from a mid-day slump or become ravenous in the middle of the day, then think about grabbing a handful of almonds or get an almond tin and carry some with you. Remember them when you’re pondering a sugar splurge or feel like you won’t last until dinner.

A handful is all you need. Empowering, isn’t it?
