A handful of nuts can really hit the spot, both in terms of satisfying hunger and packing in quality nutrition at snack time. If you choose walnuts, a palm-ful (about half a cup) brings in 9 grams of protein, plus omega-3 essential fatty acids, fiber and a decent dose of copper and manganese. Give your taste buds a new take these healthy faves with a dash of spice and some sea salt, baking for 15 minutes to add crispy crunch.
