Some of the best snacks you can enjoy (in moderation) are nuts, and almonds in particular. The benefits are plentiful – almonds contain:
- Monounsaturated fats that help reduce the risk of heart disease
- Protein to provide sustained energy
- Calcium for strong and healthy bones
- 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!
