Good morning you all!
I hope you had a good weekend. I sure did. Well… I studied a lot in prevision of next term. I can’t exactly call that a party weekend but I’m always happy to learn new things, especially when it’s related to nutrition!
Anyway, this morning I just wanted to post a photo of my breakfast which, if I gave it a simple name could be called: “Yoghurt and fruit”, but it sounds a bit boring, doesn’t it? In all honesty it was yoghurt and fruit. But I made it a bit more interesting by adding some crushed brazil nuts and the seeds that I use on salads: pumpkin and sunflower seeds. A few slices of apple and it makes a colourful, crunchy, nutritious and delicious breakfast yoghurt recipe.
How often do you eat nuts? Walnuts, cashews, brazil nuts, pecan… Each have a particular health benefit. For example, did you know that walnuts and brazil nuts both contain the minerals calcium, magnesium, potassium and iron? The vitamins C, and B6? That they are a good source of protein as well as containing polyunsaturated and mono-unsaturated fat, which can help reduce the level of cholesterol in the blood and therefore reduce the risks of heart disease? All the minerals and vitamins listed, our body needs them. And there they are, all in one little tiny nut. Isn’t life beautiful? :-)
Look it up but most nuts and seeds are loaded in nutrients that our body needs to give us energy, protect us against free radicals, make us healthy, beautiful, and happy.
Have a nice week everyone! (and eat some nuts!) x
