Nuts aren’t just crunchy, delicious snacks or yummy toppings for stir-fry dinners. They are packed with tons of fibre, vitamins, and protein that help keep your body balanced and strong. What’s more, the healthy fats in nuts provide us with an excellent source of energy with minimal effect on blood sugar (win-win!).
Tip: For optimal health, choose dry roasted and unsalted varieties. I do enjoy adding a little pink Himalayan sea salt to mine for added electrolytes (and flavour!).
Here’s some of my personal favourites:
Walnuts are rich in antioxidants and Omega 3-fatty acids, which have an anti-inflammatory effect on the body. Their abundance of fibre contributes to a slower release of sugar into the bloodstream.
Almonds are high in magnesium, improving blood sugar and insulin function. They are also filled with Vitamin E, which can help prevent the oxidation process that leads to clogged arteries.
Pistachios contain a wealth of nutrients, including Vitamin A, cholesterol-reducing fats, and antioxidants. Their high degree of fibre helps manage glucose levels in the bloodstream and promote digestive health.
Cashews are low in sugar, and contain key minerals that strengthen bones and tissue. They boost hair and nail growth, and are a filling source of energy.
So many wins when it comes to incorporating nuts into your diet!
