Tip 25: Snack Strong
Nuts are so packed with health benefits you would be crazy not to indulge. Nuts are an excellent source of protein. Minerals such as potassium prevent cramps following workouts, and iron ensures an adequate supply of oxygen to produce energy. The soluble fiber in nuts slows the passage of food through the intestines, helping the body absorb essential nutrients. Whether you choose to eat raw or roasted nuts is a matter of preference, though oil-roasted nuts will be slightly higher in fat and calories.
