Almonds :-)

The food of the week on one of my favorite sites (the world's healthiest foods) is the amazingly tasty, versatile, nutritious almond! High in protein, healthy fat, vitamin E, manganese - also containing a good amount of magnesium, copper, B2 and antioxidants (read the full low-down here) - almonds are truly a super-food :-) I love enjoying them dry-roasted, sprouted, in baked goods...
