Let’s Go Nuts!!!

Generally,  nuts are good sources of fat, fiber and protein. Most of the fat in nuts is monounsaturated fat, as well as omega-6 and omega-3 polyunsaturated fat. However, they do contain some saturated fat. Nuts also contain a number of vitamins and minerals, including magnesium and vitamin E.

Other benefits of eating nuts:

  • reduce risk factors for metabolic syndromes, such as high blood pressure and cholesterol levels
  • reduce the risk of other chronic diseases like type 2 diabetes, heart diseases, and certain cancers
