Benefits of Almonds:

Almonds are one of the best superfoods on this planet. It is very unfortunate that the media has brainwashed people into being afraid of consuming fat in their diet. Almonds have numerous health benefits on their own, and they can also be used as a topping on other great dishes. In this recipe, we show how to use almond crumbs as a healthy alternative to bread crumbs, to take your meal to the next level.  Flounder is an excellent dish to add this amazing superfood too.

Step 2: Rub the EVOO onto the flounder so that the entire surface area is coated with the oil

Step 3: Dip the flounder into the almonds on both sides so that the majority of the flounder has almond crumbs

Step 4: Add the flounder to a frying pan

Step 5: Ensure both sides are cooked (flounder begins to flake off when cooked)

Step 6: Serve the flounder over 4 oz of cooked sweet potato, 1/2 cup of rice, or 1/2 cup of quinoa (shown here)

Step 7: Feel free to add a handful of veggies such as kale, spinach, onions, chopped peppers or peas.
