National Almond Day – February 16th

almond tree

Saturday is National Almond Day. This pointed nut deserves its own day since it serves up a nutritional punch! Here are some of its benefits:

  • High in monounsaturated fats to help promote heart health

  • High in fiber – According to MayoClinic.com, dietary fiber not only keeps your digestive system running smoothly but also helps lower cholesterol and stabilizes blood sugar

  • High in protein – Along with their significant amount of fiber, the protein in almonds helps control hunger

  • High in manganese, copper and riboflavin to help in energy production

Since my hummus is made with crushed almonds or almond butter, you are getting these benefits as well as many others from the remaining natural ingredients that I use to make a sweet treat healthy.

  1. Hi, I started drinking almond milk a few months ago. I didn’t like soy milk but almond milk is really good.
