Almonds - Project 365 # 26

No I am nuts (grin) but I love just about any kind of nuts there is. Among my favorites are peanuts, pilinut (Phil. local nuts from our region), cashew, and almond.
I bought a pack when we went to the store the other day, it serve as my snack when I am in front of my PC and doing online stuff.

According to Info Library or catalogs.com, almonds is one of the most nutritious nuts around because it is  rich  with vitamins and mineral that help our body healthy.  Some of the benifits of almonds includes:

  • the consumption of a certain form of vitamin E that is a very important antioxidant
  • Almonds can also help you lose weight. Because they contain fiber, protein, and the good type of fat, they help keep you full, making them an ideal healthy snack
  • Almonds are very beneficial for heart health. They contain low levels of saturated fat and have no cholesterol.
  • Almonds are low on the gylcemic index, which means they do not cause a large increase in blood glucose levels. It has been found that almonds help decrease rises in blood sugar after meals.
January 26, 2011:

  • The students (hubby and Ms. Burrito) are in school.  I have to pick her up after class.
  • I have one task to write today.  Thanks God, I was able to finish   most of it yesterday.  I had to decline two of the tasks given because I was so exhausted.
  • I will try to make some home made pizza later.  It's been a while since we made one.

I also love nuts, any kind. We are lucky we have a hazel nut tree which produce many kilograms of nuts every year. We are still eating the ones we picked in August. Diane

I am with you. I am nutty also. I love cashews and almonds and then peanuts the least.

Visiting from Friday Hops! I'm an almond freak, too, and I buy the dark chocolate covered ones at a local candy shop like crazy!

Kimberly said...

we all love almonds in my house. It is rare for all 5 of us to like the same food.
My son will sometimes blanch them.
or get raw ones and roast them.
