Almonds – a healthy handful!

Are you looking for a new, tasty and healthy snack? This month, how about trying snacking on a handful of almonds every day?

According to accredited practicing dietitian Sara Grafenauer, there is significant scientific evidence to show that including 30 grams of almonds into a balanced daily diet helps lower LDL cholesterol, an important factor when it comes to preventing heart disease.

“Almonds are also a great source of the antioxidant vitamin E, proven to promote cardiovascular health. They are rich in magnesium and potassium, essential for proper blood flow and the maintenance of healthy heart function,” Sara explained.

Australian almonds can also make a positive difference to your waistline as they contain dietary fibre and protein, two nutrients known to increase the feeling that you’ve eaten enough. They also help to satisfy hunger for longer.

Try swapping your current snack food for a handful of almonds or perhaps add almonds in your favourite recipe? To add variety, try dried cranberries with your handful of almonds for an extra antioxidant boost.
