Almonds are truly a super food, and they're very tasty. Munching on almonds is good for your heart because they're high in vitamin E and folic acid. Almonds are also the most nutrient-dense nut and are loaded with fiber, magnesium, protein, potassium, calcium, and zinc. Clinical studies have shown that eating a portion of almonds, as part of an overall healthy diet, will help to reduce cholesterol levels. Additionally, if you snack on almonds throughout the day, you're less likely to take in calories from unhealthy food sources as they improve satiety. A 1-ounce serving of almonds amounts to 163 calories, and in case you were wondering, it takes 1,000 pounds of almonds to make 1 pint of almond oil.
