I often bring my own home-made snacks to work. For the times when I can't, I'm thrilled that it's now easy to find a good nutritious snack at many Toronto convenience stores.
I popped into a magazine store steps from my studio looking for an afternoon snack. After scanning the selection of protein, nut, seed, grain and fruit bars, I picked up an "Almond Delight" almond bar - currently my favorite nut bar. Here's why:
- It has only 3 great ingredients: almonds*, honey, malt
- It has 9 grams of protein and 183 calories
- It's produced locally (Markham, Ontario)
- It's under $2
- It's delicious
*Almonds are high in calcium, magnesium, vitamin E, protein, fiber, and cholesterol-lowering fat. Here's the full nutritional breakdown. Yay almonds!
