ALMOND VEG.STIR-FRY


Despite belonging to the nut family and having its share of quirks, almonds have their share of health benefits – they lower blood cholesterol levels and reduce the risk of heart disease. Note that I’ve used toasted almonds and not fried them, so as to keep a check on the calorie count. Plus, the vegetables contribute abundant nutrients to this dish – making it absolutely fine to have as an occasional treat, even diabetics.
