Often referred to as the King of Nuts,Almonds are versatile nuts that form a delicious part of our daily lives and offer natural goodness in every bite. Owing to their crunchy,scrumptious and nutritious nature,almonds can be made a part of our daily diet in various ways.

A unique cookout session conducted in Jaipur helped take this idea forward,where almonds were the main ingredient involving unique snacking and festive recipes demonstrated by homemakers of the city.

The session was conducted by Chef Navneet Singh and Nutritionist Anju Atreya as three homemakers from the city led the way in showcasing how almonds could be made a part of our daily diets through snacking and festival food preparations.

The interactive afternoon kick started with the three homemakers Alpana Chaturvedi, Richa maathur and Nirupama Sharma displaying their culinary skills by demonstrating a recipe each which featured almonds as the hero ingredient in snacking and festive recipes.

Nutritionist Anju Atreya and Chef Navneet Singh shared insights into why almonds make for a healthy snack. Anju highlighted that “almonds are a powerhouse of 15 nutrients such as vitamin E, magnesium dietary fibre, protein, and more.”
Almonds have shown to lower LDL cholesterol and might help in reducing levels of heart-damaging inflammation. Not just this,a handful of almonds promotes the feeling of fullness,helping you keep hunger at bay. They are naturally high in dietary fibre and low in sugars.

Navneet said,“With all of us becoming health conscious,we are always on the lookout for recipes with a healthy twist,nuts like almonds are a healthy option. Almonds are easy and quick to flavor and go with just about any masala/spices, whip up some flavoured almonds to give your family as a healthy and tasty snack,in addition to plain almonds.”

The cookout session was followed by the best snacking to Nirupama Sharma and festive recipes to Richa Mathur being awarded with an attractive gift hamper.
Eating almonds is great way to stay healthy. But a healthy lifestyle involves not only exercising and eating healthy balanced meals, but also smart snacking.
