Those who ate about 20 percent emoticon of their calories from almonds for four months saw their bad LDL cholesterol drop and their insulin resistance decrease compared to a control group who didnít eat them. Almonds may even safeguard your gut: A test-tube study (funded by the Almond Board of California) found that the nuts raised levels of good bacteria that bolster the bodyís immune system. (20% is alota almonds! chris)

Pistachios are rich in the antioxidant gamma-tocopherol, a form of cancer-fighting vitamin E. Pistachios are also packed with potassium, a mineral essential for a healthy nervous system and muscles, and are a good source of vitamin B6, which can lift your mood, fortify your immune system, and more.

    emoticon Almonds were on the List of Suggested Snacks yesterday on the Winter Wellness Challenge. I may have to put them -- and Pistachios -- on my Grocery List. I am not a Big Fan of Almonds but since the "Suggested Serving" is 3 Almonds I can Learn To Like Them.
