Why Should I Eat Almonds For Breakfast?
August 15, 2015, by Rebecca Jackson
Mmmm, nothing say breakfast to me like some yogurt, a banana, and almonds. Almonds, being a nut, tend to get a bad reputation from time to time because they are high in calories (1). In fact, one full cup of almonds is roughly around 817 calories! However, we would never want to eat that many at once. A serving of almonds is around 170-204 calories which makes them a great addition to breakfast.

Almonds are chalk full of healthy proteins, about grams per serving, healthy fats, and vitamins and minerals. Therefore, when we eat almonds, are bodies utilize every bit of them…there are no empty calories in an almond. Almonds are particular high in these minerals, copper, magnesium, zinc, phosphorous, and iron. In addition to other vitamins, almonds contain large amounts of vitamin E, and some of the B vitamins (Riboflavin, Niacin, and Thiamin). So, if you haven't had your breakfast yet, try sprinkling a few almonds into the mix (anywhere from an eighth of a cup to a fourth of a cup).

Have fun & Be Active!
