NATIONAL CHOCOLATE WITH ALMONDS DAY

National Chocolate with Almonds Day is observed annually on July 8th.  What a great combination to enjoy and it is also filled with added health benefits!

Perhaps you want to grab a chocolate bar filled with almonds or a bag of chocolate covered almonds or possibly you would like to bake some chocolate brownies filled with chopped almonds or any of the many other recipes that are available.  Whichever option (or options) you choose, it is sure to be a delicious and enjoyable treat !

  • help build strong bones and teeth
  • provide healthy fats and aid in weight loss
  • lower the rise in blood sugar and insulin after meals
  • help provide good brain function
