Why I’m Nuts for Nuts

You’re absolutely nuts if you don’t love nuts.

They’re honestly one of the best snacks ever.

And still I hear people say “OMG there’s so much fat in nuts.”

Yes. There’s fat in nuts. Healthy fats. Not sick-o fats. This isn’t circa 1995 where fat-free is cool.

Because honestly? Fat-free crap is crap. It’s full of chemicals.

However coconuts, avocados, and of course, nuts contain zero chemicals & they’re all healthy fats that make skin & hair shine while promoting weight loss.

Ok, lemme break down the real deal facts on nuts:

+ Fiber: ya they ensure a healthy, normal poo cycle…gross? IDC- it’s the truth. Nuts also lower cholesterol & promote a healthy colon.

+ Vit E: nutsies improve skin, the immune system, & help repair DNA.

+ Antioxidants: they also happen to be one of the most powerful antioxidants. Ever. Plus they’re filling.

Umm…sold, love, die.

My favorites? Unsalted pistachios, almonds, & cashews.

Happy Friday! x. Lauryn

      I have a serious obsession with nuts and nut butters! I love to make my own nut butters! It’s SO easy and WAY cheaper than buying any of the stuff in the stores. Plus, you know exactly what goes into it! I just did a fitness competition, and I can honestly say that almond butter saved my life when I was feeling woozy backstage from water and carb depletion. Yum!!!

    It irritates me so much when people say they don’t eat nuts because of the fat content. Like I get so mad at them! Even after explaining the differences of saturated and unsaturated fat they still have the same mindset… silly people! haha!

    And yes, I love nuts. I even made sugar-free, gluten-free cookies using almond flour: http://berrybloomxo.blogspot.co.uk/2013/07/berrybakes-sugar-free-cookies.html

    I love nuts too! My faves are walnuts and pecans. I add them to everything: salads, smoothies, oatmeal, cereal, f desserts, fish, veggie dishes – such a great healthy source of fats and some protein, too.
