Nuts make a great snack. Not only are they high in protein, fiber, and healthy fats, almonds are high in calcium too. Even if you know a serving size of nuts is one ounce, it's tough to know how many almonds it takes to make that ounce. I found this cute little tin to help you control your snacking portions.
It holds exactly one ounce of almonds, so you can keep this tin in your purse, on your desk at work, or in your gym bag. It's an easy way to know you're getting about 160 calories, six grams of protein, 200 mg of potassium, 75 mg of calcium, and 1 mg of iron. The tin looks to be the size of an Altoids tin, so you can make your pocket sized case for almonds, walnuts, or pistachios.
