Almonds help raise the good cholesterol (HDLs) and lower the bad (LDLs). They are a good source of fiber, vitamin E (an antioxidant which helps keep your skin, heart and circulation, nerves, muscles and red blood cells healthy), as well as many of the important B vitamins, so important to cell metabolism. So if that doesn't give you enough reasons to eat them, try this: Almonds are also gluten-free, full of protein, and taste wonderful. 

This is a recipe the kids will love making and eating! So roll up your shirt sleeves, round up the crew, and get ready to have some fun.
  1. 1/2 cup brown rice – uncooked
  2. 1 cup water
  3. dash of soy sauce (you can leave this out).
  4. 1/2 pound firm organic tofu – mashed up
  5. 1/2 cup ground almonds
  6. 1/2 cup fine whole wheat bread crumbs
To make:
  1. Mix rice and water in saucepan, bring to a boil, cover, reduce heat, cook until mushy. (Mushier than rice should usually be.)
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  3. Put soy sauce, 3/4 of the cooked rice, and 1/2 of the tofu in a blender and blend into a thick paste.
  4. Mix the paste in a large bowl with every single ingredient you have left.
  5. Form little balls with your hands (about 36) and bake for 30 minutes.
You can eat them plain, with ketchup, on top of veggies. . .You name it! But we want to know! Email  us at and tell us how you ate them!
