@phoonk, Hmm. first time I hear this kind of statement. I suggest you to soak almond in water overnight and then peel off in the morning and consume them during your breakfast. You like it this way. Also, There is a saying from elderly people that, All healthy items does not have taste.

We eat raw almonds! We also use natural oils on our skin instead of chemical ridden lotions - and one of them is almond oil. Also I am loving almond milk - lots of calcium and it has a low glycemic index!

@much2say, Raw almonds means, Do you wash them before consuming ? What makes difference in eating them directly and eating them after soaking in water ??

I love the taste of almonds. It is one of my favorite nuts. I have not tried it for use on the skin yet, but I imagine it must be very good for skin. One way I get to eat almonds is by eating a Safeway energy bar. The are chock full of almonds and very tasty and cheap to buy.

I eat raw almonds almost everyday. Never had the patience to soak it and keep overnight and eat every morning though.
