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 takes their raw, certified organic almonds and slices them so they’re all ready to add to your salads, cereal, baked goods, or whatever else you want to add them to. Keep them in a cool dry place when you’re not using them. Or you can freeze them.
