We recommend eating a handful of nuts every day. Not only are they filling but they’re very nutritious. Almonds are the best nut source of vitamin E and a powerful plant source of protein. In fact, a quarter-cup of almonds contains more protein than a large egg. Vitamin E is important to good health and unfortunately most people don’t get enough of it in their daily diets. But you can with a handful of these delicious almonds.
Almonds are also an excellent source of biotin which is a B vitamin essential to the metabolism of both sugar and fat, and promotes skin health and energy levels. Almonds also contain riboflavin, iron, potassium and magnesium, and they’re a good source of fiber. Almond are also rich in argine and sphingolipids, which play a role in optimizing our health.
Tierra Farm’s Raw Almonds are certified organic. They are crisp and sweet and a delight to eat. They’re great as they are, or you can crush them and add them to your cereal, yogurt, baked goods or coat poultry with them.
Don’t forget to keep your almonds in a sealed container in cool dry place. You can also keep them in the freezer.
