Nuts About Nuts
A new research paper released yesterday highlights the health benefits of nuts if eaten every day.
We can’t agree more with the findings. We are advocates of using nuts or well-made nut butter as part of a balanced meal or snack.
Nuts provide a good amount of protein and good fats. Pair them with a complex carbohydrate like fruits or vegetables, and you have yourself a well-balanced snack!
As we mentioned in last month’s free health class “Hair, Skin, and Nails - Oh My!”, nuts are rich in nutrients like omega-3, Vitamin E, Selenium, and much more.
It’s important to remember that too much of anything is bad, so incorporate a SERVING of nuts into your day, as the study proposes. Mixed nuts were a PART of healthier eating, so you can’t have cheeseburgers for all your other meals and still get the benefit - sorry (to myself, mostly!).
Finally, we offer free nutritional and wellness consults, so we can chat about small dietary changes like this that can make a HUGE impact on your weight and health!
Just trying to keep it real...
