Snacks can be a strategic way to keep your appetite in check if they have the right ingredients. Trouble is, standard snack foods like highly processed chips or crackers rarely satisfy, making it frighteningly easy to plow through hundreds of calories before your hunger gauge hits full. Not so with nuts. Naturally packed with a gratifying trio of fiber, protein, and healthy fat, nuts can be a super smart nibble. Just be sure to limit portions to 1 ounce or less to keep calories under control. That’s about 14 walnut halves, 22 almonds or 49 pistachios. Try making your own snack mix with different nut varieties and some spicy pepper!
