Almonds, Almonds Almonds!!

 

  

Did you know that almonds originated from China and Central Asia centuries ago? ….no? Well, did you know that they are ancestors (I prefer them term sisters, if you will) from peaches, plums and nectarines? How about the fact that they are botanically considered a fruit? “WHAT? THAT’S MADNESS!!”… I know, I know. That’s what I thought too.

 

In addition to these little bad boys being titled a fruit, they are also full of nutritional value.

 

A one-ounce serving of almonds includes:

– 7 grams of protein

– Magnesium

– Vitamin E

– Phosphorus

– Copper

– Riboflavin

Best of all, they hold no cholesterol or sodium…Woooo Hoooo!

  

And according to my colleague, a handful of almonds (six to be exact) can actually help with hunger pains. Now, that I’ll have to look up J hee hee hee…..

 

Enjoy your almonds every one!
