Recipes with Almonds

Definitely, almonds are a food that should be present in any diet, especially in vegetarian and vegan diets. Almonds have a high content of monounsaturated fatty acids (oleic acid ) and contain considerable amounts of vitamin E (24 mg). Besides being very energy and a good source of fiber, are rich amounts of calcium, magnesium and protein: eating two almonds is equivalent to drinking a glass of milk. Almonds are an essential element to prevent heart disease and improve blood circulation.

They are basic in the Mediterranean diet, which is reputed to be a very healthy and balanced cuisine .

GENERAL COOKING TIP: If you buy the almonds with skin and want to easily peel them, put them a few minutes in a pan of boiling water, then drain in cold water. You will see that the shell comes off very easily.

Oh my gosh, the almonds with port wine sounds just amazing!! I've never even thought of anything similar to that, that's a great idea! I've been making my own almond butter lately, and it's amazing just how much you can do with it. I eat it all the time mixed into my oats in the morning, or on fruit, or even just a bowl of almond butter and yogurt is great!

I just read here that including almonds in the diet is not necessary to frink milk any more as their calcium intake is a lot way better and natural, but many times you just think that almonds are good for sweet recipes which is very wrong as you can include them in almost all food, you can see this in these recipes
