A Note on Almonds

The benefits of almonds are plentiful. They contain monounsaturated fats that help reduce the risk of heart disease and promote healthy cholesterol levels; protein to provide sustained energy; calcium for strong and healthy bones; and magnesium, which plays a role in a healthy metabolism. Dr. Weil recommends keeping unsalted or low-salt almonds that are raw or dry roasted as a staple in your pantry. Toss some in a salad, or on cereal or yogurt. Chop finely and use in a marinade, or to coat tofu "burgers." Or simply enjoy them on their own!

Try a Pineapple Almond Shake for an invigorating treat.

I eat almonds most days. They are a great snack, just watch the calories.

You can also make almond milk, another way to enjoy the benefits of almonds.
