Christine Kirkpatrick, of the Clinical Health Institute in Cleveland, gives an interesting background on the amazing nuts: what pistachios (which, by the way, are fruits) and kale have in common, and what makes the walnut unique. “Rich in fiber, nutrients, heart-healthy fats, nuts are sugar-free and low in carbs. With all this, the taste of nuts is loved by many! Despite the facts, many of my patients avoid them like wildfire because of their high fat and calorie content. There is nothing to fear! Nuts can and should be part of your diet, in very moderation, of course. I call nuts “vegetarian meat”! Do you know why you will never see shelled cashews in stores (in markets, etc.), which cannot be said about other nuts? Because cashew peel is far from a safe phenomenon. Cashews are in the same family as poison ivy. The poisonous cashew oil is in the skin, which is why the nut is not presented in it. According to the authors of a study conducted in 2010, cashews are widely used in Indian, Thai, Chinese cuisines as a garnish or ingredient in curry sauce. They make nut cream as a vegan alternative to milk. Lovely pistachios, in fact -. They owe their rich green color, as do spinach, kale and other green vegetables. Pistachio consumption increases blood antioxidant levels, improves heart health, and even reduces the risk of lung cancer. Add pistachios to salads, make pasta, and eat whole.
So, the walnut contains something that no other nut can boast of. In addition to the benefits for heart health (including improved endothelial function), walnuts have been shown to reduce the risk of prostate and breast cancer. In older people, motor skills and motor function improve. Use walnuts to make a gluten-free base for vegan pies and pastries. Yes, peanuts belong to the legume family. And also: they should be included in your diet during pregnancy. A study published in the journal Pediatrics in 2013 states that children whose mothers consumed peanuts and nuts during pregnancy are significantly less likely to develop nut allergies. This statement is established despite a sharp jump in the incidence of allergies in children over the past 15 years. In fact, therefore, do not be afraid of 1-2 tablespoons of peanut butter per day! It is enough to make sure that it does not include sugar and partially hydrogenated oils. In 2008, researchers found that almonds (especially the fats in almonds) are able to contribute to. Later, in 2013, studies noted the ability of almonds to give a feeling of satiety without the risk of weight gain. Men, the next time you buy nut mix, don’t throw out the brazil nuts in it! 🙂 This nut is very rich in a mineral that is recognized for its effectiveness in the fight against prostate cancer. A few brazil nuts a day will give you the selenium you need. Either way, to get the most out of nuts, it’s important to eat them in moderation. After all, they contain a considerable amount, albeit useful, but fats and calories. This means that, however, constant snacking throughout the day is not an option.
And, of course, avoid salted beer nuts, nuts in caramel honey sugar glaze and so on. Be healthy!”
