One of my favorite quick snacks, especially when paired with fruit and/or yogurt!
Almonds are a nutrition packed nut. Like others nuts, it is high in fibre, monounsaturated fats and antioxidants like vitamin E. Almonds contain high amounts of magnesium important for circulation of oxygen in the blood which is crucial to optimum cardiovascular performance. They are also high in potassium which is important for heart function to increase endurance, as well as for muscle contraction, to promote strength andassist in a speedy recovery.
(Watch out for the "roasted" almonds that you find in the snack aisle, these are usually full of added salt and oils and often sugar)
