Nuts great for snacking and in #Cookies

Looking to shape up, loose a bit of weight and look great for warm weather?? One food that you may want to consider snacking on is nuts. Nuts are among the healthiest foods that you can eat. Loaded with antioxidants, fiber, protein, vitamins and minerals. Nuts can also lower cholesterol, reduce the risk of cancer, lead to better heart health and keep weight under control. However, like most things not all nuts are equal, there are some that are healthier than others.

  • Macadamia nuts contain more heart healthy monounsaturated fat than any other nut. This fat can help lower cholesterol and blood pressure
  • Cashews contain high volumes of iron zinc and magnesium that are responsible for keeping blood oxygenated, help with immune system and improve memory
  • Brazil nuts contain selenium can help prevent cancer. Eating to many of these nuts can be dangerous as well so limit yourself to about 5 Brazil nuts a day 
  • Almonds contain more fiber and Vitamin E than any other nut

1 cup roasted almonds
1 cup lightly salted peanuts
1 cup cashews
1 cup sugar
2 eggs

Give the nuts a whir in your food processor (or magic bullet in my case).
In a bowl combine whirred nuts, eggs and sugar. Mix well.
Drop on a parchment lined cookie sheet and bake at 375 degrees for 12 to 14 minutes. Enjoy!
