Almonds

Keep almonds on hand for an easy, fast and delicious daily snack.

Delicately flavored almonds are a healthy addition to both sweet and savory dishes. Although packaged almonds are available year round, they are most fresh — and nutritious — in mid-summer at the height of their season. Eating almonds in moderation promotes lower cholesterol levels, prevents heart disease and can aid in weight loss.

Almonds are healthy nuts loaded with lots of essential nutrients and health benefits. There are various proven benefits of almonds; everything from fat burning to a great source of fiber. In addition to this, almonds are rich in folic acid, vitamin B, vitamin E, magnesium, potassium, zinc, iron, and are a good source of healthy monounsaturated fat. Not only that though, they contain more calcium than any other nut.
