Tips  

“Twice a week, I take an exercise class, and I also go dancing once or twice a week. That burns off calories and keeps me in shape—it is also a lot of fun.” Wanda S.

Nuts and seeds are great little gems because they contain so many nutrients, but adding them in moderation is best because they are high in fat. Fortunately, a little goes a long way in terms of flavor, and if nuts and seeds are lightly toasted, they become flavor giants!
