Almendra | Almond
“Sweet” almonds are often eaten raw or added to salads, stir fries, casseroles and other dishes in addition to breakfast cereals, desserts and trail mixes. You can even make your own healthy almond milk if you are avoiding dairy. Eating almonds on an empty stomach increases nutrient absorption if you are eating them for health reasons. Besides being tasty raw, roasted, seasoned or sugared, almonds’ biggest health claim may be in their ability to boost brain function.
