Nuts & Seeds
Main benefits of nuts and seeds?
Nuts and seeds are both integral parts of a healthy diet. Both of which help you reach your recommended intake of protein each day, as well as count toward your daily fat allowance. Seeds and nuts benefit your health because they offer key essential nutrients and play a role in disease prevention by keeping you healthy as you age.
- Fiber - Nuts and seeds are great sources of dietary fiber, fiber is a specialized type of carbohydrate found in plant-based foods.
- Healthy fats - You need fat as part of your diet, and eating nuts helps ensure that your fat intake comes from healthy unsaturated fat rather than harmful saturated fat found in meats and other animal products.
- Disease Prevention - A diet rich in nuts and seeds also helps keep you healthy as you age by preventing disease. People who regularly consume nuts tend to weigh less than those who rarely eat nuts, as well as face a lower risk for weight gain in the future.
