Almonds are an excellent, naturally gluten-free food. They are packed with protein, healthy fats, fiber & calcium. Just one ounce provides 6g protein, 3.5g fiber and 75mg calcium (8% of the RDA). Not only are they nutritious, but they are versatile, too. Almonds can be eaten whole, by the handful, slivered on salads, in entrees or in baking, as almond butter, or as flour in baking.

Almond flour is a gluten-free baker’s dream come true. It is one of the most nutrient-rich flours available. Elana’s cookbook is based cooking & baking with almond flour. I have the cookbook and the recipes are very simple, yet delicious. Most of the recipes use only almond flour, not a mix of gluten-free flours as seen in a lot of gluten-free recipes. There are a few recipes that use more than one flour which seem to be coconut flour or arrowroot powder.

Almond butter is one of my favorite foods on the planet. I eat it at least once a day, if not more. I spread it on waffles in lieu of syrup, I use it on rice cakes, I use it in my marinara sauce making it “marinutta” sauce “. I can’t get enough! Trader Joe’s has the cheapest almond butter around – $4.99 for 10 oz. They have many varieties of raw or roasted and they taste great!
