Nuts and seeds: deliciously healthy!

- Categories : Live a healthier life

Do you love granola full of roasted nuts and seeds; for breakfast or even savory foods like pastas and salads? Great news! Because nuts and seeds are full of nutrients and are indispensable in a balanced diet.

1. Separate the wheat from the chaff

When we say nuts and seeds, we are not talking about the many unhealthy varieties that you find in supermarkets such as cocktail nuts, chocolate coated nuts, sugary nut pastes.... If you want to enjoy the many healthy properties they contain, choose pure unsalted nuts and seeds, whether or not roasted.

2. What exactly are these health benefits?

Nuts and seeds contain a high dose of healthy, unsaturated fats that are required to keep a body in good health. These fats provide essential fatty acids that our bodies do not produce themselves, so we have to ingest them through food. In addition, they have a beneficial effect on cholesterol levels, potentially reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease.

In general, it is recommended to eat an average of a handful of nuts and seeds a day. You can do this by just taking nuts to school or work as a snack, but you can also sprinkle them on yoghurt together with some granola and fresh fruit, on salads and pastas or use them in breads and other baked goods.
