Health is Wealth
Let’s face it not all our mothers are health addicts, and so helping her make small yet impactful changes in her diets can go a long way in building overall health. Adding a handful of almonds to her diet is a good way to start, they serve as a nutritious snack, and have been shown to impart a number of health benefits such as weight management, heart health, skin health and diabetes. The Almond Board of California supplies some of the best quality almonds you can get your hands on.
Bollywood actress Soha Ali Khan, said, “I believe it’s equally important for us to treat our own health as priority, along with that of our families. As mothers, we tend to neglect our own health and give our family’s interest and health utmost importance. For mothers with a hectic work schedule and a family to look after, eating right should be a priority. I rely on almonds as they are a source of 15 nutrients such as vitamin E, magnesium, protein, riboflavin, zinc etc. Since I travel frequently for shoots and other engagements, I ensure keeping a handful of almonds with me so that I always have a healthy snack handy.”
