Creole Spicy Roasted Almonds
Last year I started working with Blue Diamond Almonds and feel in more in love with almonds. I made a Lighter Chicken Salad with Sriracha Almonds, Almond Crusted Goat Cheese, Almond Crusted Chicken Tenders, and Salted Caramel Snack Bars. Whatever it is that you add almonds to makes it better. Almonds add such great flavor and texture to both savory and sweet dishes.
Creole Spicy Roasted Almonds make a great snack or homemade gift.
Creole Spicy Roasted Almonds – Health Benefits of Almonds
- First, almonds are a source of many nutrients which help in the development and health of the human brain.
- Regular consumption of almonds helps to increase the level of high-density lipoproteins (HDL) and they reduce the level of low-density lipoproteins (LDL).
- Almonds are a great source of many vitamins and minerals, and phosphorous is among them! Phosphorous can have a considerable impact on the strength and durability of bones and teeth, while also preventing the onset of age-related conditions like osteoporosis.
- Almonds are great sources OF alkali materials. This strengthens the immune system, as well as increase the ability to stave off diseases and various health conditions.
- The benefits of almonds in regards to skin health. Almond oil massages are very popular. Almond milk is also added to some soaps, because of almond’s well-established reputation of improving the complexion of the skin.
- Furthermore, the potassium present in almonds helps to regulate blood pressure. Almonds are very low in sodium, which helps to control fluctuating blood pressure.
- As well, almonds improve the movement of food through the colon. This prevents build-up and subsequent colon cancer.
- Finally, almonds also help to reduce the reactionary rise in glucose and insulin levels after meals. This modulation offers protection from the dangerous spikes in blood sugar which diabetics often suffer from following a large meal, or a meal with an unexpectedly high level of sugar in it.
And, almonds are just downright good! Keep some in the pantry to snack on. Then I decided to recreate some of my favorite flavors so they would be cheaper.
I sugar-coated the almonds and added a hint of cinnamon.
