Whether sliced, slivered, chopped or whole, almonds add the perfect crunch to both sweet and savory holiday-worthy dishes.
While living gluten-free often requires advance planning and preparation, it also presents the opportunity to explore new foods and flavors to inspire new recipes and update old ones.
• Want to start those cold mornings off right? A little almond milk goes a long way when added to your morning coffee or poured into your favorite cereal.
