Nuts About Nuts (and seeds)!

February 22, 2015 2 min read

Nuts are underrated as nutritious snacks — particularly raw tree nuts, such as almonds, cashews, walnuts, and more, which have been linked to lower cholesterol, better heart health, weight control, and even a lower cancer risk. treenuts Almonds, walnuts, cashews and pecans are wonderful crunchy additions to salads, yogurts, stir-fry or are delicious and nutritious on their own. Certain nuts are definitely better for your health than others, lets take a look… Almonds- Almonds contain the most fibre — about three grams per ounce — compared to other nuts, and are richest in vitamin E, a powerful antioxidant. I am not sure I could live without my raw almond butter! Walnuts- are especially high in precious omega-3 fats1 Walnuts are also a rich source of monounsaturated fat, an important fat necessary in improving cardiovascular health and optimizing brain function. Chia Seeds- Originally cultivate and used by the Aztecs chia seeds are a complete source of easily digestible, plant-based protein. As well as a great source of essential fatty acids, a rich source of calcium, 3 X more iron than spinach, 15 X more magnesium than broccoli and 64 % more potassium than banana! The insoluble, gelatinous fibre aids digestion and cleanses the digestive tract. I use chia seeds everyday in my superfood elixirs or in my go-to breakfast of chia pudding! Pumpkin Seeds-Super rich in zinc, pepitas are excellent immune system boosters. If you haven’t yet, I suggest trying pumpkin seed oil… to die for! Brazil Nuts- Just 3 contains your daily recommended intake of selenium! Pow! Make sure that you buy your nuts raw and preferably not from the bulk bin isle where they have been sitting out and possibly contaminated. Also, cashews, pistachios and peanuts should be avoided because of their high mold and toxin content.   Click here to check out more from Gillian
