Why You Should Eat Almonds…

Almonds are awesome.
Nutritionally, the almond is praised due to its high presence of protein, monounsaturated fatty acids, dietary fibre, vitamins like riboflavin, and trace minerals such as magnesium, calcium and iron. Indian Ayurvedic practitioners believe that almonds are capable of increasing brain capacity and longevity.

Here at The Unexpected Guest we bring you the maple roasted almond. We use the finest quality raw Australian almonds, and lovingly coat them in organic and mineral rich maple syrup. They taste amazing and leave you to feel well nourished and energised.
