snack but you probably don't know just how good almonds are. Each
ounce of almonds contains a good amount of the antioxidant vitamin
E, 6 grams of protein and no cholesterol. Almonds are also an
excellent source of magnesium and offer calcium, fiber, the B

Egg protein is of such high quality that it is often used as the

the pattern the body needs. An egg contains varying amounts of 13
vitamins plus many minerals. An egg yolk is one of the few foods
which contain vitamin D, the sunshine vitamin.

tomato-based products can reduce your risk of cancer,
cardiovascular disease and several other chronic illnesses. The
lycopene contained in these products can be a useful tool for
people trying to stay healthy.
