If you stick to well-balanced, healthy eating on a regular basis, then
giving into a craving when it strikes is not only permitted, but is
encouraged. The nutritional profile of almonds allows you to
incorporate them into a healthy diet, and their wonderful flavor and
texture makes those decadent foods that much more special. So, with
"everything in moderation" as your motto--indulge! Your favorite
prepared cheesecake can be dressed for success by covering the top
with toasted, slivered or chopped almonds. Simply sprinkle the almonds
over the top of the cake to cover, and press down lightly. A fabulous
marriage of textures and tastes! If the spirit moves you once in a
while, indulge in a hot fudge sundae. Top it off with a generous
amount of toasted slivered almonds. You can choose decadent fudge
sauce and ice cream or go with the low fat versions. Either way, the
crisp almonds make it a memorable treat. To make surprisingly
delicious and crunchy "croutons," heat your oven to 350 degrees, then
toss 2/3 cup slivered almonds with 2 teaspoons olive oil in a shallow
baking pan; arrange almonds in a single layer in pan and sprinkle with
1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese and 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
before baking 10 to 15 minutes until golden brown, tossing once. Cool,
and toss the "croutons" with green salads just before serving, or
sprinkle on steamed vegetables. See
