CHOOSE A DIET LOW IN SATURATED FAT.
Active or Hectic
Many of us lead a lifestyle that is hectic rather than active. We devote our time to many different things but neglect good nutrition. It could be our work, our social life or taking care of our family’s needs. When hungry or in a mood for snacks, we often resort to comfort foods. Our diet could benefit from something healthy and convenient, something that has been a part of Indian culture for hundreds of years, but is still relevant and suitable for this new, modern day setting. With the presence of good unsaturated fats and a low saturated fat content, almonds could be the perfect addition to any lifestyle.
Healthy and Convenient
Almonds are a wholesome tree nut loaded with health benefits. To begin with, a 100g serving of almonds contains vitamin E (25.63mg), fibre (12.5g), protein (21.15g) and many other useful nutrients and minerals. With a daily suggested serving of only 23 almonds (about a handful), this nutrition comes in a package perfect for any kind of lifestyle. With such a nutrient profile, almonds are a snack that you can benefit from whenever and wherever you like.
Low in Saturated Fat, High in Health Benefits
Almonds are low in saturated fat. One serving of almonds (28g) has 13g of unsaturated fats and only 1g of saturated fat.* As part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol, almonds are also heart-healthy.* This is just one of many health benefits that almonds can provide. In fact, there are over 130 peer-reviewed studies to date which together support the benefits of regular consumption of almonds for heart health, diabetes andweight management when eaten as part of a healthy diet.*
The Right Balance
Any lifestyle, especially a hectic one, can benefit from the addition of a healthy snack like almonds. They are convenient, tasty and most importantly, healthy. Munch on them when hungry or if you have a long day ahead and, ifyou like, sneak in some honey-glazed almonds to add a little sweet to your healthy treat. For those of us looking to make a healthy start, why not start with almonds? It could make all the difference.
