Almonds

My friend is a nurse and she told me to make raw almonds and blueberries my best friends. So I just had some raw almonds. Five. Now I can't find how many calories they have..so my almond eating is at a standstill until I find out.
Can anyone HELP ME????
I'll have to go back to chips because I know how many calories they have..thousands..simple.

calories in almonds

Almonds (raw) are around 7 calories apiece. They are high in fiber and good fats. There is some research showing that due to their tough cellular walls, all the calories of almonds may not be absorbed. Don't get wrapped in calories-concentrate on nutrient density (what you are getting nutrient wise for your calories). Avoid grabbing them by the handful since you will want to empty your hand quickly. Instead, put a small handful in a small dish and eat them slowly. They can also stave off that midafternoon hunger.

I am linking (hopefully) to the nutritional info in a cup of dry roasted, unsalted almonds. On nutritiondata.com, you can also look up several other kinds, just type "almonds" into the search engine they have.

1/4 cup serving

I usually eat a 1/4 serving of almonds at 4pm before going to the gym. the 1/4 serving has 170 calories. It is surprising how filling they are!

Almonds are the best!! I can eat just a few a day and not want to go back for more, like other crunchy snacks. And they're packed full of healthy benefits. Everyone should eat an ounce a day. I've read that and heard that in so many different places.

160 calories in a 1 ounce serving of almonds. You want to make sure to not eat too many because they can be tough to digest. Maybe a serving or two a day.

Don't give them up! Almonds are great. Just have 6 at a time. That's it.
