Almonds are a great choice for your mid-morning or afternoon snack. They provide the much needed magnesium that you require daily, plus they are rich in potassium, manganese, copper, vitamin E , selenium, and calcium. And in case you didn't know, a quarter cup of almonds has almost as much calcium as a quarter cup of milk. So go ahead and grab about one handful of almonds, and enjoy them with your favorite fruit, for a smart and healthy addition to your meal plan.
Do you have a sweet tooth? The weather is getting warmer and the grills are slowly coming out. It's easy to make fruit kebabs, for a nutrient-packed and energy-boosting dessert. Pineapples, bananas, apples, and pears are great raw, but they also cook well when placed either directly on the grill or wrapped in aluminum foil first. Serve with a nonfat yogurt or fat-free whipped cream. This tasty treat will have your family and guests begging for more fruit!
