The Nuts And Seeds Gang:
Over the next few weeks, stop by for eight posts about nuts and seeds, how to incorporate them into your diet, which ones are best, and recipes for use...
  1. Flax Seeds
  2. Chia Seeds
  3. Pumpkin Seeds
  4. Sesame Seeds
  5. Sunflower Seeds
  6. Walnuts
  7. Pistachios
  8. Almonds


    Tons of Protein, Vitamin B, and other vitamins and minerals. Very concentrated source of protein
    While, like most nuts, Almonds have a high calorie and high fat count, when eaten in moderation they can provide a very concentrated source of protein, lower bad cholesterol, boost energy, reduce risk of heart disease, and prevent gallstones.
    Almonds, like most nuts, are fairly high in calories and fat. 1/4 of a cup is sufficient for a snack or sprinkling over other foods. Be careful not to sit down with a huge bag of these and eat too many. It's easy to do!
    Eating almonds whole (with their skins on) provides the most nutrients. Almonds can be added to SWEET and SAVORY dishes alike, as it is used in everything from liqueur and cakes to salty finger food.
