Nuts!

Are you nuts about nuts? Well, then I”ve got some good news for you: nuts are cholesterol-free, generally low in sodium and a great source of vitamins and minerals.

Brazil nuts can also be a fantastic source of complete protein – especially in the diets of vegetarians. And nuts make a great on-the-go snack.

A note of warning though: nuts are quite high in fat – even though the fats are generally good for you.

But if you’re trying to lose weight or are at risk of heart disease, you need to cut back a bit.
