Reason: Even though nuts are a great source of things like fat, protein and minerals like zinc, I like nuts too much. Unsalted raw almond butter is like candy to me.
Since taking the Paleo leap (and even before) nuts were an easy out. A handful for a snack, or a couple tablespoons with an apple. Unfortunately when you do this several times a day, your fat intake gets high fast. My weight has always been pretty stable, but I know if I want to get as competitive and fast as I can that means changing my body composition: loosing fat and gaining muscle.
Goals for this Input Challenge:
1. To include nuts in my diet 3-5 times a week instead of everyday
2. To get creative and think of better snack options for afternoon hunger
3. To stop eating spoonfuls of almond butter for dinner
