Delicious almond recipes: How the dry fruit can contribute to a healthy lifestyle

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day and should never be skipped. However, most people ignore the first meal, owing to their busy schedules. This practice is common among college students, who need to catch early morning lectures or are staying in hostels and complain about the lack of time.

Parents, who send their teenage children off to college for the first time, are quite concerned about their food choices as most kids simply grab unhealthy snack bites from canteens. In fact, many college students tend to skip meals – mostly breakfast – while transitioning to a more hectic and independent lifestyle. And that is when their eating patterns start having adverse effects on their health issues.

Carrying a handful of almonds could be a good healthy option. So, here are some easy and quick almond recipes for students or office goers, who find it difficult to make time for breakfast.
