Go nuts for nuts!
Great for snacking on, for some energy before a workout or even adding to your dessert for a satisfying crunch, nuts are ideal for a healthy addition to your meals. They’re often a source of vitamin E, an antioxidant that helps protect cells from oxidative stress – hazelnuts, almonds, pecans and Brazil nuts are all rich vitamin E sources.
Pesto is a versatile sauce and can be made to your liking, even using different fresh herbs to change the flavour. If you fancy going for the traditional Italian version with pine nuts, this is your go-to, with a smooth, buttery taste. Or maybe you fancy using walnuts instead for an earthier, milder taste? If so, then this basil and walnut pesto is the one for you.
Nuts and Asian cuisine go hand-in-hand, and they can add a great depth of flavour to your dishes. Whether it's blended peanuts being the star of the show in a turkey satay stir-fry, or chopped cashews garnishing this speedy veggie noodle stir-fry, they’re a super-easy way to up your vitamins and get the delicious benefits all at once.
