Nuts

Nuts are packed full of heart-healthy nutrients such as protein, soluble fibres, plant sterols, vitamin E, magnesium, potassium, zinc and copper. Because they are also naturally rich in unsaturated fats and low in saturated fat they can help lower cholesterol as part of a diet low in saturated fats.

There are lots of different nuts to choose from including almonds, pistachios, walnuts, pecans, cashews and peanuts.

How much do I need to eat daily?

A handful of nuts (25-35g) is about the optimum amount each day. Choose unsalted nuts and if possible opt for nuts with their skins still intact and unroasted (rather than roasted varieties) as these contain additional nutrients.
