Superfood of the Week: Almonds

15 Jun

Why They are Good for You:
  • Helps lower chance of developing Osteoporosis
  • Helps with bone growth 
  • Contains calcium (Hey, maybe we don’t need THAT much milk after all…), protein, potassium, and iron 
  • Perfect fill me-up snack to tide you over for a few hours 
What They Taste Great In:
  • Sprinkle slivered almonds on your favorite yogurt for an extra crunch!
  • Add a few to your oatmeal or cereal in the morning for the perfect protein-enhanced breakfast.
  • Make your own trail mix with almonds, dried fruit and dark chocolate chips or try my “Delightful Trail Mix” recipe.
  • Add sliced almonds to rice, quinoa or other hot pasta dishes.
