1. Almonds and Almond Butter

Almonds and Almond Butter

Almonds and almond butter in their raw forms are some of my favorite sources of healthy fats. They contain magnesium that calms you down, which also aids in muscle function, prevents or treats headaches, increases bone health and aids in nervous system functions. Magnesium is also wonderful if youโ€™re suffering low energy. Almonds are rich in monounsaturated fatty acids, which not only help to slim you down in the waistline especially, but are also excellent for your heart. Almonds contain a nice crunch, plus fiber, protein and Vitamin E, which make them an all around power food. They stabilize hunger, prevent blood sugar spikes, and prevent junk food cravings. A handful in the afternoon makes a perfect pre-dinner snack to power you through the rest of your day and prevent overeating later.
