In a segment on CTV News Winnipeg almond advocate, Gina Sunderland, shared some tips about making better snack choices to help keep New Year resolutions. She recommends instead of chips, swapping for 1/4 cup of crunchy almonds which have less calories than previously thought but still have the nutrients such as fiber, protein and iron. She then suggests replacing the traditional puffed cereal treat with ABC's Almond Butter and Puffed Quinoa Squares recipe developed by Christy Brissette which contain 6 g of protein and 3g of fiber.
