Almonds are a healthy and delicious snack popular all across the world. Almonds were originally grown in Mediterranean and Middle Eastern countries before being spread throughout the world.

Almonds are also one of the most healthy foods you can eat, containing many of the nutrients our bodies need in just one raw nut.
