So did you know that today is "National Almond Day"???
And do you know why "almonds" are celebrated???
Well . . . historians say that "almonds" were one of the earliest cultivated foods by mankind and are mentioned as far back in history as the Bible.
Now . . . yesterday we spoke of the health benefits of "love making and orgasms" . . .
Well . . . did you know . . . that a daily intake of "almonds" can actually improve sexual functions such as "boosting desire" and "orgasm quality"???
Well . . . they can . . .
But, let's clarify first . . . I'm talking about "RAW" almonds . . . not roasted or flavored!
Okay . . . so what other health benefits are there from eating "almonds"???
Well . . . "almonds" are very "nutrient rich" . . . and supply the body with fiber, protein and heart healthy fats, which can all give us more energy.
"Almonds" are also full of "antioxidants" which can protect the body from infections and cancers.
They're high in vitamin E content, which can protect our cell membranes from becoming damaged. And long-term eating (everyday) can lower the risk of many diseases including Alzheimer's disease.
Now . . . as we know . . . regulating our "blood sugar" can be very challenging at times . . . and "almonds" have the ability help keep your "blood" healthy. This makes it an excellent food choice for "diabetics".
And "almonds" . . . due to their "magnesium" . . . can also help you "poop" on a regular basis. They can regulate blood pressure and are one of the best "cholesterol-fighting" foods which can significantly lower cholesterol levels.
And with this . . . it makes it a "heart healthy" food.
Now . . . for those mommas-to-be . . . "almonds" are one of the healthiest foods a pregnant mother can eat to help boost not only her health, but also her baby's overall development. Why you ask???
Well . . . "almonds" contain folic acid which may potentially reduce birth defects.
NOTE: As always, please check with your own healthcare provider before eating anything new during pregnancy.
Okay . . . so we've spoken a lot about "inflammation" lately . . . and "almonds" . . . due to being rich in healthy omega-3 fatty acids . . . is an excellent "anti-inflammatory" food.
And finally . . . since many of us are working on our weight . . . "almonds" can actually lower your hunger level . . . therefore, reduce your calorie intake helping with weight control.
"Almonds" also contain little to no carbs . . . but as I stated earlier . . . are rich in protein and fiber which will help the stomach to feel full.
So next time you're hungry . . . grab a handful of yummy "raw" almonds.
