She is delicate and sleek and has been around for a very long time.  Almond is powerful and beautifully nutritious and she would like you to remember, like so many throughout history, that she is a food to be loved and revered both for her flavor and her nutrition.  This little nut (who is technically a seed) is like so many other friends we’ve met and can trace her roots back to the ancient Mediterranean.  Almond now calls California her first home, though she also enjoys growing in Spain, Iran, Morocco and other warm and temperate climates.

Almond is a little power house of good for you vitamins and minerals.  She is a good way to add vitamin E to your diet for beautiful and healthy skin, so much so that her oil is often an ingredient in beauty products.  Almond can also satisfy cravings with her protein and heart healthy unsaturated fats which may be why she tops list after list of key weight loss foods.  On top of all that, she is a tasty source of calcium to help strengthen bones, especially for those limiting or avoiding dairy products.
Sure she’s tough to crack, but once you’ve added her into your diet, we’re sure you’ll never let her go!  There are so many ways to include her in your menu from raw as a simple snack to flavoring an elaborate fish, chicken or grain dish.  To get started, try this restaurant recipe at home or try one of these Healthy Dining menu choices for your next meal out:
