Nutritious Almond Snack Ideas & Heart-Healthy Eating Tips!

California Almonds and Registered Dietitian Nutritionist Marisa Moore have teamed up to offer 20 new almond snack recipes, along with heart-smart wellness tips. From almond peach granola and smoked paprika almond popcorn bowls to make-ahead travel snacks such as almond butter banana cookies, almonds can be enjoyed and celebrated in all kinds of ways. Moore knows the importance of maintaining proper nutrition and eating quality foods. Here are some of her ideas to eat better:

  • Crush cravings for something crispy. Use egg white and almond meal to coat and bake chicken or vegetables for a crunchy, toasty crust that's got fiber and flavor.
  • Sweeten oatmeal and yogurt with fruit like cooked apples or pears, berries and bananas.
  • Learn to love tea without sugar by adding fresh lemon or mint for a little extra zest.
  • Sprinkle a dash of cinnamon or unsweetened cocoa in your coffee for flavor without excess sugar.

I know, Candy Stephens ! I used to have 10 for a snack because Oprah said so. Then Meredith Schneider said I could have 20. :-)
