When I decided to start eating healthier than usually, one of the meals was the nuts. It was a difficult choice to make, because we have so many types of nuts, all full of nutrients and health benefits. On the other hand too much nuts could be bad for you, so I had to search on internet a lot to find out what nuts I need, for the benefits I want and at what time to eat them, to help me.
After all this research, which anyone of us should do, I decided that I will eat almonds, goji berry, sesame seeds, pecan nuts,pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds. Don’t imagine I will eat a bag or a fist of all this nuts. No way. I will have 5 or 6 goji berries, 3 pecan nuts, 10 almonds and a tea spoon of sesame seeds, pumpkin seeds and sunflower seeds. All this nuts are a snack in the morning,around 10 AM. Because they have fats, it’s better to eat them in the morning and not in the evening.
Besides being packed with protein, most nuts contain at least some of these heart-healthy substances:
- Unsaturated fats
- Omega-3 fatty acids
- Vitamin E
- Plant sterols
You can choose different nuts. Is not a rule to eat those ones.I choose those because was easy to find them in my small city. We don’t have a great market for nuts. I can find nuts online, but maybe I am crazy, but sometimes I wanna see what I am buying.
