Go Nuts! 5 Healthy Ways To Eat Almonds

By aggieskitchen |

So yesterday was National Almond Day and I learned that almonds are a fruit. I had no idea!

I have always know that almonds were a nutritional power house and try to have them with me in the car for snacking (where I tend to be when snack attacks seem to occur). Other than being a great source for healthy plant-based protein, almonds are also rich in vitamin E, dietary fiber and monounsaturated fat which is known as one of the “good” fats that is also found in olives and avocados. Basically, it’s plain and simple, almonds are good for you. Enjoy them.

Other than snacking on raw or roasted almonds (raw almonds are more popular among the very health-conscious), there are so many ways almonds can be incorporated into your diet. We all know almonds are a great ingredient when it comes to sweets (just check out these Cranberry-Almond Muffins, yum!)…but they are an even better ingredient for those of you who are looking for ways to add in additional nutrition and health benefits to your daily recipes such as salads and smoothies.

Here are 7 delicious ways that you can include more almonds into your daily diet. And while you’re here, share with me your favorite healthy way to eat almonds!
