A very interesting article about almonds.
In the article, the author offers six different ways to include almonds as part of your daily nutrition plan.
"Place almonds in a plastic bag and vigorously hammer into a fine powder. (You can also do this with a food processor.) Mix in some plain breadcrumbs and use the mixture as a coating on fish or chicken, recommends Diane Henderiks, RD, and personal chef."
"Top a slice of whole wheat bread with almond butter and sliced strawberries—fold in half into a sandwich, suggests Jenna Braddock, RD. Throw into your bag for a post-gym power lunch."
"For a quick snack, toss almonds with olive oil, cumin, oregano, chili powder, and a pinch of salt. Spread in an even layer on a baking sheet and roast in a 325-degree oven for 15 to 20 minutes, says Henderiks."
"Substitute almond butter in for any stir-fry sauce recipe calling for peanut butter, suggests Braddock. Or create your own by adding almond butter, soy sauce, brown sugar, rice wine vinegar, and ginger. Serve with rice and a heap of vegetables."
"For an antioxidant-packed dessert, Henderiks suggests chocolate-covered almonds. Melt 70% dark chocolate in a large bowl in the microwave. Toss in almonds and stir. Spread on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and cool."
"In a blender, combine almond milk, almond butter, chocolate protein powder, and a cup of ice for an afternoon snack that will carry you to dinner, says Braddock."
