Feeling hungry in the middle of work and worried about the calories? Keep a fistful of almonds handy. They are a rich source of proteins, folic acid, vitamin E, fibre and help keep the blood sugar in check. They are also high on heart-healthy good fats, biotin, manganese and copper that are needed in trace quantities, but important for optimal nerve health and hair.
Calorie counter : 1 almond contains 7 calories.
