Almonds Reduce Belly Fat with recipe

Almonds Reduce Belly Fat

 

Replacing a high carb snack each day with a handful of almonds ( about 1.5 ounces) reduces belly fat.

 

For 12 weeks, researchers at Penn State University gave overweight volunteers with high cholesterol identical diets, with one exception – one group got a daily snack of almonds while a second group got a banana muffin snack equal in calories.

 

The almond snack reduced total cholesterol, including LDL (bad) cholesterol when compared to the muffin, and also significantly reduced belly fat.

 

Research found that substituting almonds for a high carbohydrate snack improved numerous heart health risk factors, including the new finding that eating almonds reduced belly fat.

 

People with chronic high cholesterol levels, need to be tested for thyroid problems also.  Almonds have been shown to work with thyroid problems also.

 

Gluten Free Honey Roasted Almonds  (Gluten Free, Dairy Free)

 

Ingredients:

2 cups raw whole almonds

1/4 cup sugar (I used evaporated cane juice sugar)

1/2 tsp sea salt

2 Tbsp honey

2 Tbsp water

1 Tbsp coconut oil

 

Directions:

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.

Mix the sugar and salt together in a small bowl and set aside.

Rinse the almonds and spread out on a cookie sheet. Bake 12 minutes (stirring every few minutes and watch careful not to burn them.) Set aside.

In a saucepan melt the honey, oil, and water together until it boils. Add the almonds and stir continuously for about 5 minutes.

You can either sprinkle the salt and sugar mixture on top of the almonds or you can stir the almonds into the mixture. Spread the almonds so they are not touching out on wax paper to cool completely. Store in an airtight container for up to 3 weeks.
