Eating certain foods can affect the health and appearance of our skin. Nuts such as raw almonds make a great snack and have a myriad of health benefits. I love snacking on raw almonds during the day to give me an instant energy boost. These nuts are a fantastic source of phosphorous, zinc, folic acid, proteins, calcium, and nourishing vitamin E. Vitamin E can help protect your skin from the sun’s damaging UV rays and also helps to hydrate during the colder months. Calcium helps the body regulate skin cell regeneration and protein contains essential amino acids that help create collagen to prevent wrinkles. Almonds also contain monounsaturated fats that are important to the body for functions such as brain development, cell division and strengthening the immune system. So next time you are feeling a bit hungry for a snack, grab a handful of almonds.
