Snacks during the day are roasted almonds and fruit. Eating a quarter of a cup of nuts about four times a week can help reduce coronary heart disease risk by an amazing 37 per cent. Almonds supply protein, calcium, fibre and vitamin C. It’s definitely my go-to snack. A serving is a quarter of a cup.

Almond Board |
California almonds make life better by what we grow and how we grow. The Almond Board of California promotes natural, wholesome and quality almonds through leadership in strategic market development, innovative research, and accelerated adoption of industry best practices on behalf of the more than 7,600 almond farmers and processors in California, most of whom are multi-generational family operations. Established in 1950 and based in Modesto, California, the Almond Board of California is a non-profit organization that administers a grower-enacted Federal Marketing Order under the supervision of the United States Department of Agriculture.
