What 7 Almonds Can Do

A recent New York Times article pointed out that President Obama, when he is at home in the White House at night, will often retire to his private office to review documents, read or even watch TV.

When aides arrive at the White House the next morning they are faced with a stack of papers that have margin notes, decisions and questions.

Although he works late into the evening the president does not ask for coffee, tea or any other caffeine source to help him focus. He asks for 7 almonds. Not six, not eight but 7, which apparently gets him through several hours alone to focus on the nation’s business.


These seven almonds, which are lightly salted, provide 6.26g of protein and include 5.47g of carbohydrates, 14.98 g of fat and 169 calories, according to the website fatsecret.com. Without the salt the president would have consumed just 49 calories containing 4.25g of fat, 1.69g of carbohydrates, and 1.79g of protein.

Almonds do not contain caffeine so it’s clear that he’s not using them to stay awake. It would take 100g of almonds to get just 1.64 mg of caffeine. – hardly enough to keep anyone awake.

It’s nice to know that the leader of the free world depends on almonds to help him make the decisions that we all depend on. What could almonds do for you? Contact American Export House and place your order today.
