Eat the Right Amount of Almonds Every Day

Posted on : May 2nd, 2019

How much is the right amount?

The right amount? What does that mean?

Well, everyone knows by now that almonds are a great source of nutrition and make the perfect snack. Almonds are full of protein and good nutrients like magnesium and vitamin E. They have lot of healthy fiber and beneficial fats. Research has shown that they can help you control your blood sugar levels, reduce blood pressure and lower cholesterol levels while addressing your hunger. And if you substitute them for a less healthy snack almonds can even help you lose weight!

But did I mention they have a lot of fat? Yeah. Even the good kind can be overdone. So that’s why the Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommends that the ideal daily portion is 1 ounce of almonds, or about 23 almond nuts. That’s enough for the healthy benefits without overdoing it on the fat, assuming, of course, that you’re not binging on other fat-filled choices like ice cream, cookies and chips that are less good for you as well!

1 oz or 23 almonds. That’s the size of a small handful. An ice cream scoop. A shot glass full. The number that fit on a standard post-it note. In a baby food jar, a 1/4 cup, or . . .
