Bust Out of a Nut Rut

Ask Glen!

Q. Glen I need to add more protein to my diet! I going to try Almonds, How can I add more of them to my diet?

A. Here are 9 ways to add more almonds to your diet.

• Make plain peanut butter chunky by adding almond bits to your PB&J.

• Toss a handful of slivered almonds onto hot or cold cereal, yogurt, or ice cream.

• Sauté almonds in a nonstick pan over low heat. Add the toasted nuts to salads and pasta dishes.

• Sprinkle chopped almonds over a casserole or cooked vegetables.

• Add almond slices to an Asian stir-fry.

• Mix chopped almonds with chopped apple, onion, garlic, and herbs for a quick stuffing to serve with a roasted chicken.

• Toss some slivers into an omelette.

• Baking? Put some almond chunks into your dough.

• For a quick popcorn alternative: Spray a handful of almonds with nonstick cooking spray and bake at 400 degrees F for 5 to 10 minutes. Take them out of the oven, then sprinkle the nuts with a mixture of either brown sugar and cinnamon or salt, cayenne pepper, and thyme.
