Nut Health: Almonds
Almonds not only taste great, but they're good for you; too! A one-ounce serving of almonds provides as much calcium as a 1/2 cup of milk, provides as much fiber as an apple or an orange and contains more than 35% of your Daily Value of vitamin E. Almonds are also rich in several minerals, including calcium, potassium and magnesium, which help prevent osteoporosis and regulate blood pressure.
 
As a cholesterol free food that is also low in saturated fat, almonds have been shown to help maintain healthy cholesterol levels when consumed as part of a healthy diet. So, enjoy and treat your family, and heart, to a delicious, nutritious treat!
