Celebrating a Heart Healthy Food

February 16th is National Almond Day. Whether you are eating them by themselves, using almond milk, pasta, flour, butter, oil or meal, almonds offer a delicious flavor along with many health benefits. celebratingAlmonds are one of the most heart-healthy foods on the market, packed with vitamin E, magnesium and fiber.

  • According to a survey of 500 health professionals, almonds may be beneficial to a healthy lifestyle.
  • According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, “Scientific evidence suggests, but does not prove that eating 1.5 ounces per day of most nuts, such as almonds, as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol, may reduce the risk of heart disease.”
  • Recent research from Purdue University suggests that eating almonds can help people feel satisfied for several hours, which can support weight management and counter weight gain.
  • Eighty percent of the world’s almonds are grown in California.
