These days, you’d be hard-pressed to turn on your TV or open a magazine and not see a story about how our society is slowly succumbing to heart disease, obesity, diabetes etc. Similarly, research is showing up all over the place condoning the convenience foods many of us grew up enjoying. After all, we’re busy people leading busy lives, the faster we can get dinner on the table, the better right?
Unfortunately, the more information we get, the harder it can be to know how to approach your health in the best possible way. It can be downright overwhelming at times. As heart disease is the number one killer in America, and along with stroke are 2 of the 3 leading causes of death in Canada, people are taking note and looking for the best possible products to feed themselves and their families to ensure good health. Coupled with regular exercise, a healthy diet is critical for maintaining good health.
Thankfully, healthy eating is not a lifelong sentence to bland, tasteless, unimaginative foods. One of my favorite snacks has always been almonds. Even as a child, one of the best snacks my mum would bring home from the grocery store was Blue Diamond Almonds. I remember sitting and eating the entire container. I had no idea that almonds had any health benefit, I just knew that they tasted good.
I still enjoy Blue Diamond Almonds as a health conscious mom of two. I just try not to eat the entire package (and fail many a time). I like to add them to cereal, trail mix and love sharing an almond butter sandwich with Fit Boy.
Look who’s sporting a fancy Heart-Check Mark!
Thankfully, Blue Diamond Growers is proud to announce that a variety of Blue Diamond Almonds have been certified by the American Heart Association (AHA) as a heart-healthy food. This means that these almonds are not only delicious, but that they also meet the strict guidelines set forth by the AHA for heart healthy food. The following flavors now feature the AHA Heart-Check mark:
