Almonds are rich in monounsaturated fat – one of the two fats responsible for lowering LDL (bad cholesterol). It is also rich in Vitamin E and Calcium. It is also a source of Omega-6 Essential Fatty Acid and is free of Cholesterol. Like all nuts, Almonds are high in calories. It’s good to include a handful of almonds in your daily diet.
I love these Blue Diamond Whole Natural Almonds. It’s sometimes so difficult to find unsalted almonds and these whole natural almonds are perfect as “Grab And Go” Snacks. Each pouch (18 g) is only 100 calories and so you can don’t have to worry about counting calories. There are 32 bags in this box and it will probably last for a month.
