Rosemary Roasted Almonds

Portion size matters, especially with some nutrient-rich, yet calorically dense snacks, such as almonds. Research has shown snackers will eat more if a larger portion is offered to them, so don't plop down on the sofa with a bag of snacks and tell yourself you'll stop at just a few. Measure out a serving, and enjoy.

Smart Homemade Snack: Almonds roasted with oil and spices (111 calories)

Benefits: Studies have shown that consuming small amounts of nuts regularly has been linked to reduced risk of heart disease. Plus antioxidants contained in the skin of whole almonds may play a role in reducing oxidative stress as well as LDL cholesterol.
