Nuts are a very popular food, used in a lot of different recipes around the world, and eaten just by themselves as a healthy snack.
They come in a wide variety of options and can be enjoyed in all types of diets. They are delicious and convenient. But their taste is not the only thing that makes them popular, as more and more people become aware of how nuts bring an impressive amount of health benefits.
Due to their popularity, they are widely available in stores, and you can find shelled and ready to eat nuts in any supermarket or online.
They are a great source of many nutrients and are a particularly nutritionally rich food. Some nuts are higher in certain nutrients than others, so it is good to swap around. They are also full of antioxidants known as polyphenols, which can protect you from damage caused by free radicals and protect you against cholesterol.
While rich in fats, and considered a high-calorie food, nuts have been shown to promote weight loss. Studies have shown that your body does not absorb all the calories in the nuts, and so this can help you feel full and satisfied, while still keeping healthy. They also have strong anti-inflammatory properties.
Different types of nuts will provide different amounts of nutrients, antioxidants, fats, etc., so it is important to eat a wide variety of different nuts. You can easily find raw mixed nuts packs, which contain a selection of almonds, pistachios, cashews, walnut, hazelnuts, etc. Despite their high calorie count, nuts are highly nutritious and can bring many health benefits. Eat them in moderation and they make for a tasty addition to a healthy and balanced diet.
