RECIPE: Almonds

sunshinesMay 8, 2009

A recent blood test reveled I have very high Cholesterol ( 190 ) so along with new medication I was told to eat red kidney beans and almonds .I really like dark red kidney beans so there is no problem there eating them.

Any good recipes using almonds? I bought a can of Planters today and chopped a few up for a spinach salad. How many raw ones do you eat daily if you have the same problem? I love almond butter but it is to expensive to buy in the health food stores.

It's not difficult to make your own almond butter. Just toast them for about 15 minutes in a 250-300° oven, stirring occasionally then toss them in a processor with a pinch of salt & a TBL or so of vegetable oil until smooth.
