Alternate Name: Almendras
Almonds are often eaten raw, 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 them on an empty stomach increases nutrient absorption. Besides being tasty raw, roasted, seasoned, or sugared, almonds’ biggest health claim may be in their ability to boost brain function.
