Did you know that 92% of Americans snack at least once a day? Unfortunately, most of us are choosing fattening empty calorie snacks like cookies, candy, ice cream, and chips, usually with a sugary soda added to boot! And this is leading to an epidemic of heart disease, obesity and diabetes in the United States that is no laughing matter.
But what would happen if people were to swap these sugary snacks with almonds or other tree nuts? The good folks at the Almond Board wanted to know so they funded a study at the University of Washington’s Center for Public Health Nutrition. They did a rather detailed food pattern analysis that showed that making this simple switch could pay significant dividends in terms of higher nutrition, better overall diet quality and lower weight.
Swapping almonds for more typical snacks was shown to increase the amount of fiber, magnesium, and good fats in a diet. It also decreased the number of empty calories, added sugars, solid fats, saturated fat, and sodium. Almonds are also low on the glycemic scale which is great news for diabetics and people watching their weight.
