Nuts, seeds, beans, lentils and whole grains are all good plant sources of protein, especially if you are a vegetarian. Most vegetarians think they might be missing out on protein, But as long as they consume milk and dairy products, they are bound to get a good supply of calcium and protein. However including, pulses, eggs, nuts, sprouted beans, and seeds make up for the animal protein. Almonds are just one of such nuts. We are going to single out almonds for now.
The almond is a species of tree native to the Middle East, the Indian subcontinent and North Africa. Almond is also the name of the edible and widely cultivated seed of this tree.
Although almonds are high in calories and considered “energy-dense” (as all nuts are), they provide a whole range of critical nutrients and chemical compounds
Almonds are considered dry drupes so they first must be extracted.
In the medical world, almonds nutrition is most praised due to the presence of monounsaturated fatty acids, dietary fibre, antioxidants, vitamins like riboflavin, and trace minerals such as magnesium.
Almonds are a type of drupe nut, which means along with other nuts like macadamias, pecans and walnuts, they have multiple layers that enclose a single, hard seed in the center.
Adding a few almonds to your cereal, or just having a handful to nibble, will do you good. Almond milk is also a good source.
