Texas Mission - The almond with flavour!! Darker in colour but a more 'almondy' flavour to them, these little nuts are full of flavour.
Almonds are the only alkaline forming nut and are a highly nutritious source of protein (20-25%) - this is as much as chicken or fish and meat, but raw so fully usable by the body. Almonds are also a great source of magnesium and other minerals, Vitamin E, essential fatty acids (6 & 3) and Calcium (24%). The calcium in almonds is considered 22 x more usable than calcium in cows milk.
Great in smoothies, lightly toasted in Jim Bright's Cabbage, corn (cut off cob or thawed from frozen), lime or lemon juice, a dash of Mary-Ann's EV olive oil, fresh coriander or cilantro and Mary-Ann's Seasoning Salt toss and tuck in mmm..
You can used pumpkin or sunflower seeds in place of almonds in most recipes if you prefer a more reasonably priced source of plant proteins, fibre and essential fats
30g (a tight handful) Almonds, blended with frozen or fresh strawberries and pineapple, fresh or 100% pure apple juice, makes a delicious and nutritious smoothie.
