Check out my nuts!

We're supposed to use attention grabbing titles, aren't we?

Anyway, I've recently taken an initiative to eat less unhealthy snack foods (notice I explicitly avoided 'eat more healthy'). That still doesn't help the fact that I have cravings for them, and I'm sure you're the same way. I've finally decided on a fairly good alternative that gives you the crunch of chips, but without the greasy fingers and bloated stomach. Forget that soy crap, check out these nuts!



When it comes to their health benefits, walnuts definitely are not a hard nut to crack. This delicious nut is an excellent source of omega-3 essential fatty acids, a special type of protective fat the body cannot manufacture. In addition, walnuts contain an antioxidant compound called ellagic acid that supports the immune system and appears to have several anticancer properties.

Consuming hazelnut is very important for healthy life. Eating only 25 gr hazelnuts a day can be a very good protection against many diseases including cancer and heart diseases. According to results of a research, people who consume hazelnuts or hazelnut oil, have 50% less risk of dying because of hearth attack when compared to those who never consume hazelnuts.

Not only do cashews have a lower fat content than most other nuts, approximately 75% of their fat is unsaturated fatty acids, plus about 75% of this unsaturated fatty acid content is oleic acid, the same heart-healthy monounsaturated fat found in olive oil. Studies show that oleic acid promotes good cardiovascular health, even in individuals with diabetes. (I don't really know what any of that means, but it sounds good.

A high-fat food that's good for your health? That's not an oxymoron, its almonds. Almonds are high in monounsaturated fats, the same type of health-promoting fats as are found in olive oil, which have been associated with reduced risk of heart disease.

Getting these at a grocery store is not a good idea. A small tub of cashews will run you six or seven dollars!
