DESPITE often being overlooked, nuts are a great addition to any snack. A large handful of almonds (specifically) offer approximately 21g of protein, and despite having a much larger fat content, the carbohydrate content is relatively low. Furthermore, nuts have a good knack of making you feel fuller for longer. So for those boxers who are always peckish, adding some nuts into salads, yoghurts etc, could be really beneficial. Just watch the extra calories!
