ALMONDS….PASS ME A HANDFUL OF “AWESOMENESS”

Almonds aren’t actually a nut but rather a seed and are used today in a variety of ways including:

  • As a great nutrient packed snack on its own or in a trail mix or snack bar. Organic Traditions carries some great tasting Raw Shelled Almonds.

  • As a nutrient packed addition to countless recipes including a few of my favourites that you can find here or here

A ½ cup of almonds will provide you with approximately 5 grams of protein, 5 grams of fibre and 7 grams of carbohydrates and they are packed full of Vitamin E, magnesium and phosphorus. They are also a good source of riboflavin, manganese, calcium and iron.

So as far as healthy snacking and cooking go…grab some almonds and reap the benefits, including:

  • Great supply of needed nutrients

  • Blood sugar regulation

  • Cardiovascular disease prevention (read more here about their effect on LDL-cholesterol)

  • Healthy brain function support

  • Prevention of overeating and weight loss support

  • Protection against free radical damage

  • Healthy bone maintenance
