A new study from the University of Toronto and St. Michael’s Hospital revealed that people with type 2 diabetes, who had about 2 ounces of tree nuts instead of carbohydrates improved their blood sugar and lowered cholesterol levels. Pistachios are a good example of a nut to replace a regular carb snack, they are one of the lowest calorie nuts, and provide protein to help with appetite control. Replace pistachios with a snack that would regularly be crackers or pretzels, you’ll still get the crunch and the saltiness, and having to remove the shell will slow down your eating causing you to eat less.
