Eating healthy doesn’t have to mean eating veggies or boring foods at every meal. It is perfectly acceptable to treat yourself with snacks that are both delicious AND have the essential nutrition to keep your heart strong.
Nuts are the perfect answer when you find yourself in a healthy eating rut! Nuts contain “good fats”, both polyunsaturated and monounsaturated, which research has shown to lower cholesterol levels. And of course, high cholesterol levels can be a preceding factor of heart disease, stroke, and heart attack. Nuts are also high in magnesium, which helps metabolize fatty acids and proteins, and protects against artery calcification.
But if you eat nuts that are covered with chocolate, doused in sugar, or roasted in unhealthy oils, those heart-healthy benefits will essentially be canceled out. The great thing about You Are Nuts is that our jumbo cashews are dry roasted with only sea salt, sealing in the fresh, delicious, crispy flavor, and giving them a nutty, buttery texture. That’s right – no additional ingredients, no artificial flavors, no unhealthy oils, and no GMOs, just pure nutty goodness. You may find it hard to believe that what seems like such a decadent indulgence is actually good for your heart! So, give our nuts a try, and you will find yourself feeling better, with more energy and stamina to support an active lifestyle.
And remember, eating healthy is a lifelong journey, and You Are Nuts are a great addition to support a heart-healthy diet for life!
