The 7 reasons you should load up on Maisie Jane’s Almonds! Last call to save big at our 25% OFF SALE in honor of National Almond Day!

A – Antioxidants.

Antioxidants are packed in the golden Almond nougats including vitamin E and flavonoids. What are flavonoids? They pose benefits to our bodies including anticancer, antiviral, and anti-inflammatory. There was a meta-analysis done in 2022 that found eating 2.25oz. of almonds, a day helped reduce inflammation in the body.

L- Laughter!

Make almonds your party snack. It’s the perfect ‘healthy’ and fun snack to enjoy while laughing and having healthy conversations with friends and family. It’s so easy too! Simply put them in one of your favorite dishes or bowls and watch, they’ll be taken by the handful! No cooking is required. Show you care by feeding those you love a healthy snack.

Monounsaturated fats are the make-up of Almonds. This healthy type of fat is the reason almonds are heart-healthy! Monounsaturated fats can help reduce the risk of heart disease and maintain your overall cardiovascular health. Also, did you know that these healthy fats in almonds can support hormonal balance in women?

N- Natural Beauty.

New research shows that almonds may help improve the appearance of facial wrinkles and skin tone. A study conducted at U.C. Davis had a control group of postmenopausal women who ate 2-one-ounce servings of almonds a day. The impact was a decrease in facial wrinkles and overall skin pigmentation, thus benefiting aging skin. Read more here.

D- Diet food.

Yes, Almonds are the perfect food to include in your food-eating plan if you want to lose weight or maintain a healthy weight. Since almonds are rich in fiber, protein, and healthy monounsaturated fats, all these components work together to make you feel full. This in turn prevents us from overeating and lowers our overall caloric intake. Of course, this works when eating balanced meals and getting in regular movement.

So don’t feel guilty at all when eating almonds, you are helping your body out and you will be less likely to crave those unhealthy chips and sweets. Try Maisie Jane’s Whimsical Roasted Salted Almonds and our Tamari Almonds with the adorable bike label for a savoy Amond delight and inspire getting your bicycle out for a spin.

S- Sweetness.

California Almonds have a natural sweetness. You seriously can put your sweet tooth at bay and grab a handful of almonds to curb that sweet craving. Notice I particularly call out ‘California’ Almonds. That is intentional and I’ll tell you why. As California grows 80% of the world’s almonds, believe it or not, we still import a lot!

Imported almonds, particularly from Europe, are very different varieties. They are much more bitter tasting than the sweet California variety of almonds. I like to explain almonds as wine grapes when it comes to the vast array of different almond varieties. Our family farm grows about a dozen different almond varieties here in Chico, CA. I am even partial and think that our ultra nutrient-rich soils up here comprised of clay and loam that’s derived from volcanic rocks offer soil that produces sweeter almonds than from the central part of the state where their soil is clay and loam dominantly granitic rock sourced. I may be a bit partial to being a native Chico farm girl though. Bottom line, eat more California Almonds…. And we LOVE the supporters of our Chico, CA family farm!
