WHY? Nuts

Tid Bit(e) Tuesday

Nuts! Unless you have a nut allergy (ignore everything I’m saying, please don’t eat something you’re allergic to!!!)

  1. PROTEIN- Almonds contain protein, lots of fat and some carbs!
  2. VITAMIN E- Nuts are one of the highest vitamin e containing foods
  3. BRAIN FOOD- nuts reduce the risk of inflammation that can cause things like dementia and Alzheimers
  4. PREVENT DIABETES- Good source of fat so nuts make the perfect snack and do not spike your blood sugar
  5. LOWER CHOLESTEROL- Almonds have consistently shown to lower LDL cholesterol
  6. INCREASE ABSORPTION- Healthy fat like nuts can will increase the absorption of vitamins A, D, K and E.

But just because nuts have amazing benefits they are pretty easy to overeat! Just make sure to get a good portion size and I would suggest to not go nuts on nuts 🙂
