SUPERFOOD // ALMONDS
While almonds are a high-fat food, they are not to be feared (because fat is your friend!) They are largely a monounsaturated fat and also a great source of fibre and protein. They contain brain health-supporting nutrients including vitamin E, folate and unsaturated fatty acids, as well as l-carnitine which is known for its neuroprotective benefits. They make a great quick snack on-the-go to their satiating protein, fibre and fat profile. You can incorporate them by swapping the sunflower butter for almond butter in these Two-Bite Chocolate Chip Nuggets recipe, which also contains plant-based protein powder – a great source of amino acids for brain health.
