Almonds

Almonds have skyrocketed in popularity in recent years, and for good reason! Almonds, which have a nutty crunch and mild flavor, are considered the most nutritious nut.

This ingredient has been found to:

  • Strengthen cell membranes and protect cells from aging and disease
  • Help normalize blood pressure and control blood sugar
  • Increase satiety, reduce hunger, and help with weight loss
  • Lower bad cholesterol levels

In addition to being a go-to healthy snack, almonds are commonly used in almond milk, or as a topping for salads and casseroles.
