Hi everyone! Sorry for the lack of posts lately but I have been so busy lately with school, moving etc.. Thanks to my home economics teacher, I discovered almonds. I have been obsessed with these nutty treats lately and heres why!
Almonds can prevent cancer. Because they are low in saturated fats and high in other nutrients that protect your body such as calcium, magnesium and vitamin E, almonds can lessen your risk of getting cancer and cardiovascular disease.
Almonds are the best whole food source of vitamin E. Almonds contain 35% of your daily need of vitamin E. It might not sound like a whole lot but when a nut can make your skin look better and your hair look healthier (which it has been doing!) it is a lot.
Almonds can be eaten in so many different ways. Allergic to peanuts and can't have peanut butter? Almonds are for you. Try almond butter on your toast instead. Stuck on what to top a cake with? Sprinkle some lightly toasted almonds on it to make it delicious.
Less than one ounce of almonds contain more calcium than a cup of milk. My home ec. teacher told me this one and I was beyond excited when I heard it. I love calcium, it makes you grow and it prevent osteoporosis. However, milk does contain cow hormones (eeek!) which can lead to break outs. Almonds don't. So if you need some calcium and don't want a glass of milk, grab some nuts.
