Blogging Through the Alphabet (Favorites Edition) ~ A is for Almonds
I will be joining Marcy at Ben and Me for another round of Blogging Through the Alphabet. I thought I would put a spin on it and post each week about a favorite thing of mine.
This week I am posting about Almonds … sliced almonds, to be exact.
I love sliced almonds. They add that little extra bit of crunch and are very healthy. I sprinkle them in oatmeal, greek yogurt, bran cereal with raisins, and in chicken salads.
I always keep a bag of sliced almonds in the refrigerator to sprinkle on anything that sounds good.
Some of the health benefits of almonds are: they reduce heart attack risks, they lower bad cholesterol, they provide healthy fats and aid in weight loss, they lower the rise in blood sugar and insulin after meals (which is why they are great to eat with carbs), they are an alkaline protein so help fight osteoporosis.
