VT’s 21-Day Lunch Challenge: Day 16
What’s for lunch? Spinach-Quinoa Salad with Cherries and Almonds
Smart Bite: Chew on this. You may remember that you were told to chew your food as a child, but you may not realize that thorough chewing could actually help you manage your weight. Participants in a recent study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition were less hungry and more satisfied after chewing almonds 25 to 40 times before swallowing as opposed to chewing them only 10 times. Why? If you chew almonds more, youll absorb more unsaturated fat, which helps you feel fuller for longer.
