Things get a little nutty this morning with this amazing apricot hazelnut toast followed by a snack of yogurt topped with walnuts. No shortage of polyunsaturated fat there, not to mention valuable minerals like magnesium and zinc. A robust chef’s salad will certainly keep you well-nourished — and full — through the afternoon, but if not, enjoy a light snack of high fiber pears. But you’ll certainly want to save room for this spicy Thai dinner, which is surprisingly easy to make in under 20 minutes!
