Almonds are one of the most popular and widely consumed nuts, commonly enjoyed raw or roasted as a healthy, satisfying snack. They are used in trail mixes, granolas, and mueslis, and in savory dishes such as curries. Many desserts from around the world – amaretti, marzipan, nougat, macaroons, and the like – use almonds as a primary ingredient. Almonds are also used to create almond milk, a popular dairy substitute.
In Biblical and Greek mythology, almonds are associated with hope, good fortune, and celebration. Almonds are lauded as an extremely healthy food, as they are known for their high nutritional value and low cholesterol content. Almonds are high in monounsaturated fat which acts as a very effective weight-loss tool – staving off hunger and keeping you full longer.
