Why I Love Almonds

Almonds are a powerful little superfood nut. They are a perfect snack when you are craving something crunchy and nutritious. They also take a decent amount of chewing so you eat slower (perfect) and it takes longer to digest. A handful is just what you need to gain all of the benefits you are looking for.

I’m sure you hear all of the time that almonds are good for you, but do you actually know why? Here are a few reasons why you should add almonds into your diet:

Why You Should Eat Raw Unsalted Almonds:

  1. Source of healthy fats (key for weight loss/management)
  2. They lower “bad” cholesterol
  3. Help build strong bones
  4. Reduce risk in heart attack
  5. Energy booster snack
  6. Provide excellent brain function
  7. Boost your immune system
  8. Help with skin care

Now get up, go grab some raw unsalted almonds and feel good because you know it’s helping your body! Remember only unsalted and raw almonds provide these benefits. Sure you can still eat salted or roasted almonds but always shoot for unsalted and raw. I personally buy mine at Trader Joe’s. Super affordable and come in a decent sized bag.
