Not only are they packed with protein, fibre and essential fats, they are very tasty. In alphabetical order here are my top 4:
ALMONDS - calcium-rich almonds are a good choice to ensure you're getting enough of this bone-building mineral and are high in vitamin E, a nutrient which helps to improve the condition and appearance of your skin.
BRAZIL NUTS - are great for people with low thyroid function, they are a good source of the mineral selenium, which we need to produce the active thyroid hormone. Selenium also supports immunity and helps wounds to heal.
CASHEWS - are a great choice for vegetarians because of their protein, iron and zinc. They're also rich in the mineral magnesium, which is thought to improve recall and delay, age-related memory loss.
PISTACHIOS - are rich in vitamin B6, which is important for keeping hormones balanced, (pistachios are a good women with problem periods) and their shells can be used for crafts :)
