Satisfy Your Salty/Crunchy Cravings With This Fat-Burning Snack

    Let's face it.  We all get cravings, and we all give in to them.

    BUT, when you understand how to choose the right foods, you can still satisfy your every craving without screwing up your diet or being overwhelmed with feelings of guilt.

    For example, let's say you get a craving for something salty and crunchy... it's a pretty common craving.  Unfortunately, it often leaves us reaching for terrible processed foods like potato chips and pretzels—foods that certainly aren't going to have a positive effect on your fat loss goals or your health.

    But, what if you had a go-to salty and crunchy food that you could turn to in these instances that was actually healthy for you and your waistline?  Well you do...


    almondsAlmonds are loaded with healthy fats and protein that will keep you feeling full for hours, which makes them a terrific fat-burning snack to scratch that salty/crunchy craving itch.

    And here's another tip (after all, two tips are better than one):  While almonds are great, it's easy to overeat almost any food when eating straight out of the container.  In fact, research shows that you will eat on average two to three times MORE of a food when eating out of the container compared to when you pre-portion your food out into a bowl.

    For almonds, we've found that one ounce, the typical serving size, is the perfect amount to set aside for a great fat-burning snack that will satisfy your cravings while holding you over until your next main meal.

    Now, on to our THIRD tip of the day (man, we're really overdelivering!).  Did you know that recent research is strongly suggesting that there is one particular nutrient that is even more important to your health and fat-loss goals than taking a daily multivitamin?

    We show you exactly what nutrient it is, along with all the best foods that contain it, at the link below:

    ==> MORE important than a daily multivitamin: Doctors and Scientists agree

    To your success!

    1. I have the Bio Trust chocolate and Vanilla Protein Powder. I am trying to find a recipe utilizing the protein powder to make my own protein bars. Have you come up with any recipes for this? Thanks!

      • Hi Sandy,

        Thanks so much for stopping by the BioTrust blog. We’re sure that you’re going to love BioTrust Low Carb! As far as a homemade protein bar recipe, you might try the following:

        2 cups oatmeal
        1 cup BioTrust Low Carb
        1/4 cup natural peanut butter
        1/4 raw honey
        1/3 cup no sugar added dried cranberries (optional)
        1/4 almonds (sliced)
        1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
        1/4 cup unsweetened apple sauce
        1/4 cup 70% (or above) dark chocolate
        1/2 tbsp cinnamon
        1 tsp pure vanilla extract

        Add dry ingredients to a large bowl and mix together. In a medium bowl, add wet ingredients, microwave for 30 seconds, stir, and repeat as needed until ingredients mix together. Add dry mixture to wet ingredient and mix thoroughly. Place in an 8 x 8 pan. Use your hands to press flat. Refrigerate, then cut into 6 – 12 pieces (or more). Stores in the refrigerator for up to one week.

        Now, if you’re looking for an easier, super healthy alternative, you might try the BioTrust Organic Protein Bars. 🙂

        I hope this helps, Sandy! Please keep us posted with your feedback and any additional recipes that you might come up with.
