Today's Reason to Celebrate

February 16, 2015 is

National Almond Day

It’s National Almond Day! Did you know that almonds are one of the most heart-healthy foods on the market? These delicious and wholesome nuts are full of vitamin E, magnesium, and fiber, and can help lower cholesterol.

The almond tree is native to the Middle East and South Asia. It produces a fleshy green fruit similar to a peach or apricot. At the center of this fruit is a stone-like seed, which is the almond nut. Today, the state of California produces 80% of the world’s supply of almonds. It takes more then 1.2 million beehives to pollinate all of the crops!

Whether you prefer to enjoy them plain, roasted, or paired with chocolate, celebrate National Almond Day with a handful of delicious almonds!

  • February 16, 2015 is also President's Day
