Roasted almonds

Nuts are a wonderful food. They contain omega 3 fatty acids, fiber, vitamin E and more. They are high in fat, but the good thing about eating fat is that it fills you up, and curbs your appetite. They actually may help you to lose weight as well as being good for you.

Method

Heat the oven to 350F. Cover a baking tray with raw almonds. Drizzle or spray a small amount of olive oil over the almonds and mix them about to cover. If you like, add a little salt (remember total salt intake should be less than 1/2 teaspoon per day). Roast the almonds for 8 minutes. Allow to cool. You can vary the recipe by sprinkling paprika or curry powder over the nuts instead of using salt.
