Go Nuts and Toss Those Chips!

I've shared the beginning of my weight loss journey {and thank you so much for all of your support and words of encouragement} and a big part of making a real change in my health is changing my diet. I LOVE food and am constantly snacking. This in of itself is not bad, but I was making the wrong choices for snacks: processed, junk food that was high in empty calories, fat, and sodium. So I have to learn not to reach for my old standbys {potato chips and  assorted snack puffs}when I get bored or emotional AND I need to find healthier substitutes for when snacking is appropriate {like when I'm actually hungry in between meals}. Enter Sincerely Nuts...

Sincerely Nuts Salt & Pepper Pistachios

With warm weather approaching, kick the chips to the curb and indulge in a healthy alternative like nutrient packed pistachios! Sincerely Nuts has a wide variety of flavors to satisfy any of craving, with flavors like: roasted, salted, jalapeno, garlic, chili lemon, hickory, salt & pepper.  Each delicious flavor comes in a variety of sizes ranging from 1LB bag to 25LB case.

Pistachios are a great snacking option because they:

· Help keep you full longer with 6gm of protein per serving

· Provide 3 grams of dietary fiber {about 12% of the daily value} per serving.

· Provide 100mg of omega-3s per ounce {which helps reduce bad cholesterol and increase the good cholesterol}

· Are a rich source of vitamin B6 {is essential for making the protein in your red blood cells}

Nutrition Label for the Salt & Pepper Pistachios

I absolutely LOVED the Salt & Pepper Pistachios I was sent to sample. They were the perfect bite after Zumba and any time I needed a bit to eat. They are beyond tasty-they packed a little bit of heat, just enough saltiness, and the nuts have their own natural sweetness. In fact, not only did I enjoy them, so did my daughters AND the hubby. A 1LB bag costs $10.99 but right now, the people at Sincerely Nuts have been generous enough to offer my readers a  10%  discount off of any $40 purchase through April 26th. Just enter code "MF10" at checkout for your savings! Until next time...
