Hmm, almonds? Am i kidding? no, despite belonging to the nut family and having its share of quirks, almonds have their share of health benefits – they lower blood cholesterol levels and reduce the risk of heart disease.

Note that I've used toasted almonds and not fried them, so as to keep a check on the calorie count. Plus, the vegetables contribute abundant nutrients to this dish – making it absolutely fine to have as an occasional treat!
