Does it have to be a certain kind or all are ok?
raw is best, high heats cause the oils to go rancid or something like that
....i heard it on oprah
almonds are incredible for you, raw is best
yes they are good for you. they're packed with calories, so make sure it fits within your daily amount.
unsalted are best
I bought some chocolate covered ones today, they were good.
almond butter and jelly on whole wheat bread washed down with a vanilly protein shake ftw
they taste good raw and plain dont be a pussy lol
They also contain calcium, which many here could need if they avoid dairy because dairy is wrong, you know.
good think i drink like 48oz of 2% milk a day. I LOVE BEING WRONG.
anyone try that almond spread from costco? seemed interesting, but way more expensive than their natty pb.
"I think I broke my leg...it's starting to smell like almonds!"
I think they are the second best nut for you, behind only walnuts. Nutrient rich, good protein, good fat, etc. Just be careful how many you eat, 1 serving is like 20 nuts, lots of cals.
I read the post then looked at the name and was like "Oh ok."
My bio professor said that unsaturated fats can acutally change to trans fats under high heats. CIS to TRANS configuration change.
Who knows if he knows what he's talking about, he's a nut.
Yeah, high heat facilitates the process of oxydative rancidity, but worrying about trans fat in roasted almonds is anal.
