Protein Yogurt Covered Almonds
Almonds are one of those foods that not only taste amazing, but are incredibly good for you too! They are one of the healthiest nuts around as they are filled with protein, fiber, calcium and magnesium.
In fact, one ounce of almonds contains 12% of your daily protein requirement and 35% of your daily vitamin E requirement. They go with just about anything and can be added to muffins and cereal, and are the perfect portable snack! Recent research has shown that they can aid in cancer prevention and lower cholesterol.
