A new study from the University of Florida has found that improving your diet can be as simple as adding a handful of almonds into the mix.
Researchers wanted to investigate the effect that a small portion of almonds can have on the overall quality of a person’s diet. In order to do this, they collected data from 28 parent-child pairs living in North Central Florida.
The parents were told to eat 42 grams of whole almonds every day during a three week period. Children were encouraged to eat 14 grams of almonds or the equivalent amount of almond butter.
