Easy ways you can include Almonds in your diet
Eat Soaked Almonds: Soaked almonds are better because the peel of the almond contains tannin, which inhibits nutrient absorption. Soaking the almonds makes it easy to take off the peel, which allows the nuts to release all the nutrients easily
Make A Trail Mix: Trail mixes are healthy and tasty. You can make a trail mix with almonds at home. Add dried fruits, whole-grain cereal, and dark chocolate to complete the mix.
Add To Smoothies: You can use whole almonds or almond butter for this. Not only do you benefit from the vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and proteins, but the good fat in almonds also helps boost the absorption of antioxidants from your (fruit) smoothie.
Add To Oatmeal: Add a spoonful of almonds to your breakfast oatmeal to increase its nutritional value. This can help provide your daily dose of protein and healthy fats.
