Cinnamon is an antioxidant that contains anti-inflammatory properties. It protects the heart, fights diabetes and helps fights infections and viruses.
Almonds contain healthy fats and dietary fiber that aid in weight loss because they help you feel full, which curbs overeating and unhealthy snacking. Although they are high in fat and calories, they prolong the feeling of satisfaction after you eat and keep your blood sugar more stable than low-fat meals do. Thus, you’re less likely to experience a roller-coaster of energy dips and food cravings.
