By now, we all know that the most delicious things in life are good for you.
If you have a strong stomach, though, you may want to rethink your food choices.
According to the new study, it’s the almond flour, not the flax meal, that’s the most important.
“It’s not the star of the show,” says study author and dietitian Dr. Andrew F. Haggerty, an associate professor at University of Washington School of Medicine in Seattle.
The almond flour is a great source of fiber, protein and B vitamins.
It also has more nutrients than the fluffiest of the flours, says Hagger.
The researchers used a computer model to determine which foods contain the most nutrients and which are the least.
The team also looked at the amount of calories and saturated fat in the food.
They found that the almond-flavored waffles with a generous helping of almonds were the most nutrient-dense, followed by the macaroni and cheese, then the coconut oil waffles.
Hagerty says almond flour has more calories and protein than flaxmeal, which is more fiber and less saturated fat.
He adds that you can find almond flour in the grocery store.
He recommends using almond flour if you can, and don’t use it as a substitute for whole grains, like white rice.
