- NUTS - Eating is HEALTHY
Eating nuts is a healthy habit. Nuts are abundant in fiber, good cholesterol and vitamins. You can add nuts to your breakfast cereal or even biryanis. Here are nuts you should include to get a healthy boost.
Cashew nuts are rich in mono-saturated fats that protect the heart. "They are a good source of potassium and vitamin B complex. They contain healthy amounts of phosphorous and magnesium that the body needs in small amounts". "They can give you constipation and a severe headache. This is triggered by a sharp rise in magnesium levels".
"Almonds give the body calcium, protein and fibre. They protect the body against heart disease, stroke and other chronic diseases". Almonds are beneficial for people suffering from diabetes and obesity. Women who are trying to lose weight are also advised to eat almonds. "Almonds satisfy hunger. You don't feel like eating much but are not skipping nutrients either".
