Snack Attack: Almond Tin to Keep Your Portions Honest

Nuts make a great snack. Not only are they high in protein, fiber, and healthy fats, almonds are high in calcium too. Even if you know a serving size of nuts is one ounce, it's tough to know how many almonds it takes to make that ounce. I found this cute little tin to help you control your snacking portions.

It holds exactly one ounce of almonds, so you can keep this tin in your purse, on your desk at work, or in your gym bag. It's an easy way to know you're getting about 160 calories, six grams of protein, 200 mg of potassium, 75 mg of calcium, and 1 mg of iron. The tin looks to be the size of an Altoids tin, so you can make your pocket sized case for almonds, walnuts, or pistachios.

Brilliant. I keep old chocolate mint Altoid tins for all sorts of stuff in my desk -- paper clips, business cards, change, etc. Occasionally, I even find one with Altoids in it! Now I'll have something else to put in them. Great idea.

I've always just used an Altoids tin...I guess I don't worry too much if I get a couple of extra almonds than exactly one ounce. These are kinda cute, though.

I have this tin. It's quite a bit smaller than your standard Altoid tin, so if you plan to use one of those, you might want to measure out an ounce for comparison purposes.
