Almonds A complete guide

Posted 2017-08-24 by noshnoshfollow
Available naturally in kernels or slivered, flaked, ground; or even as a flour, milk, butter or oil, almonds are an incredibly versatile and popular nut (though actually a seed!).

From a health perspective, these sweet, creamy nuggets are low in carbs and high in fibre and protein, making them an ideal addition to any healthy diet, but especially for those following a plant-based lifestyle.
