The benefits of almonds are significant as they are considered one of nature’s wonder foods that improve general health. Their benefits lay in being a high source of protein, removal of free radicals, and improving heart health. Those who avoided high fatty foods can now eat a handful almonds five times a week while still encouraging weight loss and greater fitness. People who like to stay in shape and are active have heard throughout the years that only low-fat foods are helpful in this process. We found that low-fat foods across the board can actually be damaging to the body. The goal is to reduce saturated fats while eating an appropriate amount of un-saturated fats for body development. Almonds and almond milk are great methods of obtaining their benefits. I went to the farmers market in Little Italy and found a local vendor selling natural almonds flavored in different types of seasonings. I opted for the coco-cinnamon blend out of the 10 or so different choices.
