In honor of National Heart Month today is National Almond Day! Our last post was about heart health and we mentioned the importance of almonds. Today is just one day this year to celebrate how the many forms of almonds can offer both taste and health benefits. Almonds are a great snack to carry in your purse and pop into your mouth when you are feeling hungry. There are many ways to use almonds, for example, sprinkle toasted slivered almonds on a salad of greens, or add almond milk to a mixed berry smoothie to boost vitamin E and a spectrum of other antioxidants.
