Do you like nuts??

Of course you do!

Do you like Almonds??

ABSOLUTELY!

And that's a good thing, and here's Margaux Jean to tell you why:

Almond lovers rejoice! Those tasty nuts not only make a fabulous snack but are considered a super-food full of nutrients. Almonds are loaded with vitamins B2, B6, biotin, calcium, and iron. They are also a good source of zinc and omega-9 fatty acids. Almonds have been shown to help lower cholesterol levels, promote a healthy heart, boost immunity, and improve wound healing. They are also one of the top sources of vitamin E which aids in preventing cancer. If you are looking to improve your digestive health, almonds contain dietary fiber which is good for promoting smooth digestion. If you buy your almonds in the bulk bins at the supermarket, check to make sure the store has a quick turnover of inventory to ensure you are getting the freshest nuts possible. Dry roasted almonds may be cooked at high temperatures that can damage their natural oils. It is important to read the label to be sure that no additional ingredients such as sugar, corn syrup, or preservatives have been added to the nuts.

Yum yum!

Snack away! Just leave some for us LOL!
