Magnesium Source: Almonds

Just one ounce of almonds (a small handful--about 24) provides about 20 percent of your daily magnesium needs. Almonds make a terrific snack on their own (just remember to watch portion size; one ounce of almonds contains about 164 calories, 3.4 grams fiber, and 15 grams fat, though only 1 gram saturated fat). They're also great as a topping for cereal, yogurt, or salads.
