Nuts are an amazing addition to your diet. They are so versatile that we use them everyday for sweet and savoury dishes. They’re rich in B vitamins, antioxidants and omega-3. The antioxidants and omega-3 content may explain why nut consumption is linked to improved cardiovascular health. B-vitamins are needed to help our bodies convert food into fuel which is why nuts are the perfect snack to put some pep in your step and get your through the day.
