Nuts are an amazing source of protein, fibre and essential fats, making them another great food choice for those of us who can’t eat the animal meat. Additionally, a portion of unsalted nuts makes for a great snack that also provides many nutrients and vitamins. Different nuts have different benefits, and here are a few:
· Almonds: high in calcium and vitamin E, to improve your bones and the condition of your skin
· Brazil nuts: a source of selenium, which is needed to make the active thyroid hormone, making this a great food for those with thyroid disorders
· Cashews: my personal favourite, and on top of that they are a great source of protein, iron, zinc and magnesium. They’re great in a stir fry.
