Ok, so even though Nibble N Often has a huge variety of snacks loadddddsss of people are purchasing nuts from our website. So I thought I’d go into detail about how amazing nuts as snacks.
- They are high in antioxidants
- May lower cholesterol
- Nuts have strong anti-inflammatory properties, therefore they may reduce inflammation
- High in beneficial fibre, fibre helps to relieve constipation, maintain a healthy weight and lower your risk of diabetes.
- Nuts have a high fat content, so are high in energy, therefore, only have a handful at a time. However, nuts like Brazil nuts, Macadamia nuts and cashews are high in saturated fats which can contribute to a higher cholesterol, so only eat them occasionally.
- Try to avoid dry-roasted, salted, flavoured or honey-roasted nuts, which come with extra salt and sometimes sugar too. If you’re at a party, remember that nuts are often salted, which may make you feel thirsty and encourage you to consume more alcohol.
- We sell plain nuts and they are healthier, but they don’t have to be boring. Dry frying or toasting nuts in the oven gives them a stronger flavour – particularly for almonds, hazelnuts and pecans
