Snacks: Roasted Chestnuts

What should you eat when you’re hungry, ‘on the go’ and it’s still hours until dinner?  There are a ton of bad options out there calling to you.  How about something that isn’t full of sugar and that has some protein and fat in it?  You don’t even need to be following some version of a paleo diet to appreciate this choice.  This week some roasted chestnuts answered my hunger’s calling.

The bag I picked up contained two 100g packs of roasted chestnuts.  As you might guess from the packaging, I picked these up from an Asian grocer.  They were around $3.  Since these are still in the shell, and you have to peel them first, they will slow down your snacking, even if only slightly.
