Spanish Almonds

Although these olive oil-roasted almonds contain a high percentage of fat, it's the heart-healthy unsaturated kind. Plus, they offer protein and fiber, which makes them a smart snack, according to Nestle. They're great with a glass of cava (Spanish sparkling wine). The nuts will keep in an airtight container for up to five days.
