I spent the last few days in Lagos, Algarve (Portugal) and could not believe how beautiful the landscape was right next to the highway from Lisbon to Lagos. Almonds in Blossom are dressing the scenery in stunning white and pink.
The almond tree flowering is really one natural spectacle that you should not miss!
No wonder there is even a popular golf tournament in Palmares named 'Almond Blossom'!
We've heard that every fruit begins with a flower and even though this one fruit would not even enter a beauty contest it would certainly win the title for the healthiest nut!
"Almonds contain lots of healthy fats, fiber, protein, magnesium and vitamin E.
The health benefits of almonds include lower blood sugar levels, reduced blood pressure and lower cholesterol levels. They can also reduce hunger and promote weight loss.
All things considered, almonds are as close to perfect as a food can get!"
Loaded with Antioxidants (protecting from ageing and disease),
world's best source of Vitamin E,
high in magnesium,
high in protein and fiber (reducing hunger and desire to eat).
[THANK YOU HEALTHLINE for enlightening me about health benefits of Almonds.]
