Do you also go nuts only thinking about nuts? Can you not pass by the market stall selling nuts without buying anything? Do you have a nose for the smell of freshly roasted nuts and seeds?
Well, you have a very good reason to be!
“A hand of nuts a day can help to keep the doctor away”
Research has shown that people consuming at least 20 grams of nuts daily were less likely to develop potentially fatal conditions such as heart disease and cancer. Being nuts about nuts reduced the risk of heart disease by nearly 30%, the risk of cancer by 15%, and the risk of premature death by 22%. Nuts are high in fibre, magnesium, and polyunsaturated fats – nutrients that are beneficial for cutting cardiovascular disease risk and which can reduce cholesterol levels. Even though nuts are quite high in fat, they are also high in fibre and protein, and there is some evidence that suggests nuts might actually reduce your risk of obesity over time.
Well, this should give you more than enough reasons to fall in love with this heavenly nut & seed bread.
A true treat to yourself and your loved ones!
