Nuts and Seeds: Nature’s Multivitamin

Think of nuts and seeds as nature’s multivitamin. These mighty little foods are filled with minerals, healthy fats, plant protein, anti-oxidants, and more. They’re the complete package. Observation studies show that people who consume nuts everyday are less likely to develop diabetes or heart disease, which are two of the leading causes of death and morbidity in North America. 

To see health benefits, you only need to eat 1/4 cup of nuts/seeds or 2 tablespoons of nut/seed butter each day! Portion control is important because they are high in calories. 

The recipes linked below taste great on toasted sourdough bread, blended with smoothies, stirred into oatmeal, or baked into muffins. Combining a high fat food, such as these nut butters, with a source of carbohydrates helps the body to absorb the carbohydrates more slowly. This results in better control of blood sugars!

    1. Yes! Make them all! It actually means less cleaning in the end. I started with the lightest colour and scraped each recipe out of the blender as I made them but didn’t do a complete wash until they were all made!

  1. I really like nut and seed butters. Peanut butter has long been my favorite, but tahini (seasme paste) with honey is winning ground . . . . That coconut cashew butter and chocolate hazelnut do sound delicious though . . . .
