Sweetened almonds are a great substitute for sweets
If a person is allergic to nickel then one should not consume almonds but other nuts (walnuts, hazelnuts and the like). One handful of almonds a day will greatly reduce the body’s need for sweets.
The human brain loves sweets, cakes, jams. If a person avoids sugary foods then the brain agrees to fatty foods. Almonds contain as much as 6.5% sugar, which is where the sweet taste comes from. Almonds are also rich in vitamins (biotin and folic acid), minerals (calcium, potassium, phosphorus, magnesium, which are especially needed by athletes and recreationists) and healthy fats. That is why almonds create a superfood. Athletes and recreationists should not do training on an empty stomach (or just after one cup of morning coffee) because that raises the stress hormone. Then the body draws strength / fuel from the muscles that the athlete (or recreational athlete) tries to maintain through training.
I use almonds against insomnia, asthma, fatigue, painful menstrual cycles and stomach cramps. It contains a lot of fiber and protein that give a longer feeling of satiety. One fruit and a handful of almonds will be enough for an hour of intense training and a brisk walk.
