We really do sometimes take the humble little nut for granted when, in fact, it packs an almighty powerful punch.
Not only can we use the nut in different ways, but it is also a major contributor to our health.
So let’s start with the nutritional value of nuts. Yes, it does depend a wee bit on the actual nut, but generally they are a source of:
- protein (yes, nodding head, they are)
- calcium (see, you don’t need dairy – chop some nuts and sprinkle over dark green veg and you’re good to go!)
- Vitamin E
As I said – each type of nut offers different things.
