Go a bit nutty

Nuts are rich in natural oil, so it’s to no surprise that some people would say that nuts is not good for your because they are fatting. Nuts are classified as a good fat – that is the body knows what to do with it, unlike trans fat, which can clog arteries. Most nuts are a mix of omega-3 and omega- 6 fatty acids, which are essentials for heart and brain health, but also for balancing hormones.

Nuts are high in protein and fibre, and they offer many mineral and vitamin benefits.

But even though they are very healthy for us, we still need to eat them in moderation. Three or four in you breakfast muslie, and small handful (you need to be able to fit them in one palm) and you have a good source for the day.
I always have a few chopped up almonds in my morning muslie, and three or four and almonds and two to three walnuts together with a square of 70% dark chocolate for my afternoon green tea, that gives me energy for the afternoon and takes me through to dinner.
Yours in Health & Fitness,
