Good News! Eating This Food Has Been Proven To Give You A Slimmer Tummy And Legs
And we've found a bunch of recipes that'll make it taste even more scrummy!
We’re always being told what we can’t eat so when a food is put on the ‘good to scoff’ list, it’s a welcome relief.
The newest food that’s just earned a spot on the nutrition nice list? It’s almonds.
According to a study by Pennsylvania State University they had numerous health benefits including lowered cholesterol, improved heart health and reduced belly, waist and leg fat.
Lead researcher Dr Claire Berryman explains, “our research found that substituting almonds for a high-carbohydrate snack improved numerous hearth health risk factors, including the new finding that eating almonds reduced belly fat.
“Choosing almonds as a snack may be a simple way to help fight the onset of metabolic and cardiovascular diseases,” she continues.
Us? We love to keep a handful at our desks to help us power through the 3pm slump, but if you’re after something at little more fancy, why not have a go at one of these scrummy almond-based recipes?
