Almond Joy

November 25, 2008

No, this is not a review of the candy bar, although I do love that coconut goodness. This is a new find that is perfect for a late afternoon snack. Unlike other packaged almonds, these are whole and natural, which means that they are not tough and difficult to chew like some other brands. The texture is smooth and the flavors are awesome. The following is a picture of the sea salt almonds which I like to pair with some dried cranberries, whole grain cocoa puffs, and cheerios in a snack mix, but there is also a cinnamon and brown sugar flavor and vanilla, which are both ridiculously good and contain no high fructose corn syrup (so no sugar crashes!).

In terms of nutrition- you can’t go better than almonds. This perfect nut is among the earliest cultivated foods in history. Even more, almonds are loaded with protein, fiber, calcium, magnesium, potassium, vitamin E and other antioxidants and phytochemicals. Studies have shown links between nut (especially almond) consumption and lower risk of cancer, diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, and other chronic illnesses. So snack on!
