ALMONDS

One of the best nutritional changes you can make is adding 1 oz (~23) of nuts to your daily diet. Almonds are high in fibre, healthy fats, vitamins, and minerals like magnesium. A recent review of over 800,000 people found that just 1 small handful of nuts daily reduced heart disease rates by 21% and cancers by 15%! Diabetes was reduced 40% and infectious diseases 75%. Simply put, when you eat almonds (or other nuts that you enjoy), good things happen!
