Today's word is Almond.
Our "Top Nut" award goes to the almond. Here are the main nutrients in one ounce of almonds (a medium-size handful):
5 grams of protein
14 grams of fat (90 percent unsaturated)
4 grams of fiber (the highest fiber content of any nut or seed), unblanched
80 milligrams of calcium
1.4 milligrams of zinc
1 milligram of iron
6.7 milligrams of vitamin E
some B-vitamins, minerals, and selenium
Almonds have the most vitamin E (6.7 milligrams per ounce) - nearly 25 percent of the adult recommended dietary allowance. Almonds, because they are high in the amino acid tryptophan, are a good nut for sleep.
Happy Drawing :)
