When you consider nuts are packed full of vitamins, fibre, antioxidants – pretty much all of nature's goodness, it's hard to imagine why anyone would grab a chocolate bar or bag of chips at snack time instead of nuts. Need a sugar hit? Have a bowl of strawberries with pecans, macadamias or even almonds chopped in with them.
There's a reason that nuts have been around so long, and been consumed by some of the healthiest cultures in the world, like the Mediterranean diets. They are just so darn good for you.
Nuts for Life promote a Healthy Handful Daily which equates to 30g of nuts. On their website you can find out a lot more information about nut varieties and their nutritional benefits. In the meantime, grab a handful of nuts and have a read through the pdf links we've provided below.
