Nut Facts

Nuts are rich in energy, protein, packed with antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and good fatty acids. They are delicious in recipes, and they last forever stored in your pantry.


They are also high in antioxidants such as carotenese and resveratrol which act in the protection and prevention of cancers,  heart disease, nerve disease, Alzheimer's disease and even viral/fungal infections. Studies have suggested that resveratrol in peanuts reduces the risk of stroke.


They contain high levels of vitamin-E, which as mentioned in my Avocado Facts and Lemon Facts is a soluble antioxidant protecting your body and assisting in digestion.

They are rich in energy and nutrients and an excellent source of good fatty acids such as oleic and palmitoleid acids, which help to lower cholesterol and increase good cholesterol. Almonds for instance, are high in good fats which have been proven to reduce the risk of heart disease.

They are a wonderful source of many different nutrients and you should try to incorporate them into your diet! Whether it is in salads, curries, cakes, or on your breakfast bircher muesli!
