Almonds is a seed that comes from the tree Prunus dulcis, which is more commonly known as an almond tree, and they are native to the Middle East, but in this modern era, the United States is the main producer of these nuts. The almonds bought in the store have the shell removed to make the product easier to consume. And it’s no surprise that these little things carry a huge amount of nutrients on them, especially things like healthy fats and high amounts of protein which can help you build muscles and can provide the energy that you need. But what happens if you eat them daily? This is what we’re going to find out.
1. Why One Ounce?
An ounce of almonds is roughly equal to a serving of them, and to eating 20 of them as your daily recommendation. And in one ounce we have 161 calories, 2.5 grams of digestible carbohydrates, 6 grams of protein, 3.5 grams of fiber, 9 grams of monosaturated fat, and less than a gram of sugar. And with a serving of that size, it can be eaten as a snack, or as an addition to one of your main meals. So, an ounce because it is easier to see the nutrient content and because of the versatility of when and where it can be eaten.
