Almond-Cherry Energy Bars

Contributed by: NAPSA

Why Almonds Are An Essential Ingredient (NAPSA) - A well-stocked pantry means having essential ingredients on hand for easy-to-prepare meals and snacks. Take inventory -if almonds are in your pantry, then you have the most essential ingredient. So, what makes almonds so great?

Almond-Cherry Energy Bars
"Almonds are an important staple to have in any power pantry because they're tasty, nutritious and they go with just about anything," says Keith Ayoob, EdD, RD, FADA co-author of a new book, The Uncle Sam Diet: The Four-Week Eating Plan for a Thinner, Healthier America. "I put them on fruit and low-fat yogurt in the morning, or on a spicy stir-fry or green salad at dinnertime. Or, I often eat a handful as a snack."

Almonds are the best of both worlds as they are packed with plenty of flavor and nutrients, providing heart-healthy monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats, dietary fiber, protein, vitamin E, and essential minerals. In fact, research shows that when people add almonds to their regular diet, their overall intake of these important nutrients increases and helps them to meet dietary recommendations. Just one handful, about an ounce of almonds (or 23 almonds), can be an important part of a healthy, nutrient-dense diet.

So, go ahead, open up your pantry and make almonds an essential part of your day!
