But why should you be eating them? Almonds are a good source of supplementary protein, providing 7.62 grams of protein per quarter cup serving, compared to just 5.5 grams for the average egg.

“As you can see, many of the highest calcium sources in our diet do not come from dairy, and you can get plenty of calcium on a daily basis by eating lots of leafy green vegetables, or by eating bone-in fish. If you had two cups of leafy greens and a can of bone-in sardines in one day, you’d already have eaten around 840 mg of calcium. Add in some herbs and spices, and 2 ounces of almonds, and you’d be at the 1,000 mg mark easily.”
