Oh… I had so many titles running through my head for this post, but I just didn’t have the …. guts. This post is about getting more real food into your diet without tripling your calories. So I came up with this trick during the holidays when I had my nut chopper out for a recipe needing chopped walnuts. Is it called a nut chopper?
I eat oatmeal almost every.single.day. I add ground flax seed and nuts every.single.day. But nuts are loaded in calories so I don’t want the health benefits to be outweighed by the calories. The nut chopper is a great way to “stretch your nuts.” I get the benefits and the texture with 1/2 the nuts I would use if I grabbed a small handful! My son has more fun with the nut grinder and then adds the extra source of protein to his Chobani yogurt (try the coconut it’s amazing)! What do you think?
