We all know what it’s like to be out on-the-go, totally hungry with no healthy options in sight. I always have raw nuts of some variety with me for “emergencies” like this. I put them in a small container and have some in my purse and car for those times I’m not planning on needing a snack to tie me over. A small portion of any raw nuts help keep your blood sugar stable and can take the edge off if you are hungry.
Nuts have so much nutritional value as long as you consume them raw or when they are properly roasted. Nuts are loaded with vitamins, minerals, protein, healthy fats as well as very rich in fiber so it’s important not to loose the wonderful benefits by improper processing. Most nuts are low in saturated fats and high in unsaturated fat which we need in our diets.
Studies have proven that people who eat nuts weigh less and eat less overall. Belly-slimming monounsaturated fats are excellent, and each type of nut has great benefits-walnuts have omega-3s and almonds are high in vitamin E.
