All-Powerful Almonds

Under a lot of stress and constantly on the go? Grabbing a handful of almonds for a snack may be just what the doctor ordered!

Not only are almonds high in vitamin E, which has been proven to prevent cellular damage responsible for stress and reduce the risk of heart disease, but they also are a source of calcium,
magnesium, phosphorus, zinc, folic acid and fiber. Almonds are also high in antioxidants and are low in saturated fats. One ounce of almonds (20-25 almonds) represents 12% of your daily
allowance of protein, 35% of your daily allowance of vitamin E and as much calcium as a glass of milk!

Throw almonds on salads, have a handful as a snack or choose to put almond milk on your cereal in the morning and reap the benefits! If your children are not allergic to nuts, almonds are a wonderful after-school snack.
