Seeds & Nuts
Do you love snacking, but often find yourself reaching for candy or other unhealthy things? The seeds and nuts section of Bali Organic has just what you need. We have a variety of different healthy nuts and seeds you can snack on instead of those empty calories. Some of these nuts and seeds can also be used in your everyday cooking.
Almonds, cashew nuts, pecan halves, and Brazil nuts can all make great snacks. Nuts contain a good amount of protein, unsaturated fatty acids, and more. They can help improve your heart’s overall healthy, too, and studies have indicated that eating a portion of nuts regularly may even help reduce your risks of developing heart disease. Nuts do this by lowing your LDL cholesterol levels. Most nuts also contain fiber, Omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin E, L-arginine, and plant sterols, all things that can help improve your health.
Another great reason nuts make good snacks is that the cost. They’re inexpensive, plus you can take them with you wherever you go. Nuts are also quite easy to store.
The same is true of seeds. You can snack on sunflower seeds or pumpkin seeds whenever you need something to tide you over between meals. Many seeds, including black chia seeds, can also be used for cooking. These seeds are classified as a whole grain and do not contain any gluten. Like nuts, chia seeds are also very high in fiber and protein. Many nuts can also be ground up and included in recipes. For example, almonds can be turned into flour and used in place of regular flour.
