Almonds

Almonds are a rich source of Vitamin E. Almonds are also rich in monounsaturated fat. Monounsaturated fat is one of the two "good" fats responsible for lowering LDL cholesterol.


Uses of Almonds

Almond is most often eaten on its own, raw or toasted. It is also used in some dishes. Almond is often sprinkled over desserts, particularly sundaes and other ice cream based dishes. There is also almond butter, a spread similar to peanut butter. Almond butter is a good substitute for peanut butter among peanut allergy sufferers. Almond extract is also a popular substitute for vanilla extract among people with diabetes.
