Next time you think about snacking on the go, grab a handful of almonds. Researchers at Tufts University recently discovered that a 1-ounce serving of almonds contains the same level of flavonoid antioxidants as a serving of cooked broccoli or a serving of brewed green or black tea. Research also shows that eating more magnesium-rich foods, such as almonds, may help protect against diabetes, and snacking on almonds can help stabilize blood sugar levels.
