Do you love almonds as much as I do?
There are a lot of ways to use almonds. You can just pop them in your mouth for a quick and healthy treat and you can get sliced almonds to use on oatmeal or other hot cereal, in yogurt and much more.
What about using your food processor to make your own almond butter? I have seen a lot of people do that and I want to try it sometime. Almonds have so many great nutritious benefits too. But as with anything else, eat them in moderation.
Benefits of Almonds

My favorite almonds are from the company Blue Diamond (I also love their almond milk, so thick and creamy!). I like plain almonds but they also have a variety that includes sea salt, honey dijon and more. I’ll be trying those too next time I get to the grocery store.
Blue Diamond almond flavors became American Heart Association certified. That is something to be proud of. You can read about it below…
