4 Reasons to Eat Almonds
Published: 08/30/2013

Some of the best snacks you can enjoy (in moderation) are nuts, and almonds in particular. The benefits are plentiful – almonds contain:

  1. Monounsaturated fats that help reduce the risk of heart disease
  2. Protein to provide sustained energy
  3. Calcium for strong and healthy bones
  4. Magnesium, which promotes normal blood pressure and healthy metabolism

I recommend unsalted or low-salt almonds that are raw or dry-roasted as a staple in your pantry. Toss almonds in a salad, cereal or yogurt; chop finely to use in a marinade or coat tofu "burgers"; consider using almond flour as a replacement for flour in baking; or simply enjoy them on their own!
