[QUOTE=THEM]Read somewhere that almonds (in moderation) improve certain cholesterol #'s. Do people eat any?[/QUOTE]

The "World's Healthiest Food's" website has an excellent write-up on almonds.
They are not only an excellent source of biotin & Vitamin E, they also contain tryptophan, magnesium, vit B12 [riboflavin], manganese, phosphorus, dietary fiber, copper and protein. 1/4 cup is 205 calories.

Almonds are high in monounsaturated fats, the same type of health-promoting fats that are found in olive oil.
[U]Biotin[/U], a B-vitamin, is involved in the metabolism of both sugar and fat.
[U]Vitamin E[/U] is an anti-oxidant.
[U]Magnesium [/U] is Nature's own calcium channel blocker.
[U]Potassium[/U], an important electrolyte involved in nerve transmission and the contraction of all muscles including the heart, is another mineral that is essential for maintaining normal blood pressure and heart function.
[U]Manganese, Copper & Riboflavin[/U]--More Help with Energy Production

When we deprive ourselves of nutritional foods that are high in fat, we are missing out on a lot of other healthy and vital nutrients. So enjoy your 1/4 cup of almonds a day. :)
