Almonds are everywhere, and with good reason! Full of vitamin E, magnesium, protein, fiber, calcium, and more, this superfood delivers lots of health benefits in a delicious little package. When almonds are made into grain-free flour, non-dairy milk, and nut butter, these easy alternatives to wheat flour, dairy, and peanut butter support a variety of diets--vegan to gluten-free, vegetarian to Paleo. Whether you're following a particular way of eating or just looking to add variety to your cooking, Almonds Every Which Way offers key info for incorporating more nutritious foods into your diet, including:

  • Basic recipes for homemade almond milks, butters, and flours

  • Easy tips and tricks for using and storing almond ingredients

  • Nutritional info for each recipe

  • Designations for gluten-free, allergy-free, dairy-free, vegetarian, vegan, and Paleo options

And, of course, the recipes: you'll find more than 150 scrumptious almond-based dishes, from breakfast favorites like smoothies, pancakes, and croissants, to sandwiches, snacks, and easy, family-pleasing entrees like fish tacos and vegan "neatloaf." With Almonds Every Which Way, you'll have every diet, meal, and taste bud covered.
