  1. Kristin, I am 63 and my DR told me to add raw almonds to my diet. Where do I begin?

    • That’s what I’m here for! Great Rec Doc!
      My rec. is simple
      1. Look at your lifestyle and see where you can add a healthy snack in 1-2x/day.- To/from work, gym, shopping.
      2. Buy a quality product: Gold Coast Nuts Raw Almonds- http://www.goldcoastnuts.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=ARNS100
      3. Enjoy the great taste and health benefits of nuts!
      PS always remember to make sure you understand “the why” when your doc recommends things so you stay in the driver seat of your own health!

      For your platinum health,
      Kristin MS, RDN, LDN, CSG
