nothing beats an almond

Did you know one ounce of almonds gives you more iron than spinach, more fiber than any other nut, and more potassium than a banana. Almonds have zero cholestrol and a ton of nutrients such as protein and vitamin E. They're low in saturated fat and cholestrol free. Plus, they're a nice snack when you're hungry because they'll satisfy you.

Spiced Almonds

heat 2 teaspoons olive oil, 3/4 teaspoon five-spice powder and 1/4 teaspoon salt until fragrant. add 1 cup of almonds and toss to coat. transfer to baking sheet and bake at 350 for 8 minutes.

an alternative is to use 1 teaspoon paprika, 1/4 teaspoon allspice instead of the five-spice powder.
