Exceptionally nutrient-dense, just one handful of almonds (approximately ¼ cup) per day provides significant amounts of high-quality protein and fiber, as well as a wide variety of vitamins and minerals. Almonds are especially rich in Vitamin E, manganese, magnesium, and B Vitamins, and are also a good source of heart-healthy monounsaturated fatty acids.
Native to the Mediterranean region of the Middle East, almonds are not technically nuts. Rather, they are the seeds of the almond tree.
