Good Fats

Written by lee on . Posted in Super Foods

Nuts

Nuts are not only yummy but also contain healthy oils, fibre, vitamins and minerals, potent phytochemicals and the amino acid arginine. Nuts are very beneficial for heart health and if you add a handful of nuts, five times a week to your diet it will decrease your risk of coronary heart disease.  Walnuts are one of the best plant sources of protein. They are rich in fibre, B vitamins, magnesium, and antioxidants such as Vitamin E.  If you are concerned about mould and myco-toxins in nuts be sure to soak them in sea salt and filtered water overnight and then dry in the oven at 50 degrees Celsius for a yummy crispy snack. I love to make sea salt and apple cider vinegar crispy almonds they are divine.

 

Wild Salmon

Wild Salmon is high in protein and minerals such as iodine, potassium and zinc. Salmon contains omega-3 fats which are the ultimate anti-aging nutrient. They are also a large part of the structure of your brain and nerve tissues.  Omega 3 fats are beneficial for good eyesight. The best kind of salmon to eat is Wild Salmon as it contains lots of vitamin D and selenium for healthy hair, skin, nails and bones. For optimum health benefits salmon should be consumed at least three times a week.
