Celebrating #RDNDay with Almonds!
Today is National Registered Dietitian Nutritionist Day. Here are the top 10 reasons that I am choosing to celebrate with Almonds!
1. Portable & Perfect as an on-the-go snack 2. Heart Healthy Goodness 3. Delicious & Nutritious 4. Crunchy Munchy Appetite Satisfaction 5. Easy to Sprinkle, Toss or Mix into salads,
sides and main dishes or onto breakfast
cereal, muffins and desserts 6. Sweet or Savory Versatility 7. Concentrated Energy with 6 grams of protein and 13 grams of "good" monounsaturated fat per ounce 8. Naturally 100% Gluten Free 9. A fiber-rich handful (1-ounce) of 23 almonds supplies 3.5 g fiber with just 160 calories 10. Powerhouse Nutrients~almonds supply one of the highest dietary sources of magnesium along with plant-based calcium & potassium.
I can remember when all nuts were vilified as being 'too high in fat and calories'. Thank goodness times have changed for the better. Almonds are now viewed as one of the most nutritious superfoods available. The Almond Board of California has worked hard to fund continuing research to study the health impact of almonds.
