TIP OF THE DAY: Go Nuts With Almonds

It’s National Almond Day. If you’ve been laying off the nuts because you think they’re not healthy, you need some facts:

Nuts are a good protein food. Yes, they have fats, but they’re largely unsaturated, heart-healthy fats. In 2003, the FDA approved the following claim for seven different types of nuts—almonds, hazelnuts, peanuts, pecans, some pine nuts, pistachios and walnuts:

“Scientific evidence suggests but does not prove that eating 1.5 ounces per day of most nuts as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol may reduce the risk of heart disease.”

We snack on raw almonds (endorsed by nutritionists and physicians) every day, and love them. Buy raw and toasted almonds to see which you prefer. You can also season your snack with your favorite spices: garlic almonds, curry almonds, chipotle almonds, etc.

And on that healthy note, we’re not even going to mention the almond toffee, almond biscotti and other almond treats you could select to celebrate National Almond Day.
