Nuts at Pi-nuts – get to know them better
Nuts are a source of good fats, making them the most valuable types of dried fruits. Besides their good taste, nuts guarantee many more benefits. Do you know which types of nuts are best for health? Or perhaps you don’t know how to quickly prepare them? You’ll find the answers to these questions below.
Why eat nuts?
Nuts contain valuable omega-3 acids, as well as protein and fiber. They are also an excellent source of vitamin E, B, and mineral components in the form of phosphorus, calcium, and potassium. Regular consumption of nuts not only strengthens the circulatory system. It also improves brain function and reduces the risk of type 2 diabetes or heart attack. Some studies also suggest that eating nuts has a preventive effect on certain cancers. It’s worth trying to consume the daily recommended dose of nuts, which is about 40 grams per day.
Which nuts are the healthiest?
The nuts with the highest nutritional properties include:
- Walnuts – high in omega-3 acids,
- Cashews – provide substantial amounts of magnesium and iron,
- Almonds – a good source of healthy calories,
- Brazil nuts – rich in selenium,
- Pine nuts – high in magnesium and zinc,
- Pistachios – an excellent source of beta-carotene and potassium,
- Peanuts (peas) – record amounts of niacin, or vitamin B3.
Due to their high content of valuable vitamins and minerals, it’s worth consuming nuts every day. In this regard, it’s a good idea to stock up on your favorite type of nut. In this way, you can not only save money but also avoid regularly visiting local discount stores in search of a good price. If you want to buy nuts and save money at the same time, it’s worth taking advantage of specialized online stores, e.g., Pi-Nuts.
How to quickly prepare nuts?
Nuts are a great addition to salads, oatmeals, or yogurts. They are also perfect as homemade peanut butter.
To make homemade peanut butter, pour a cup of pre-soaked favorite shelled nuts (approx. 150 g) into a container with a pinch of salt and blend them into a smooth paste. The prepared butter should be transferred to a jar and stored in a dry and cool place.
Peanut butter can also be used to prepare nut bars. Simply mix the ingredient with maple syrup and heat in a pot until a uniform mass is obtained. Then add chopped nuts and a bit of coconut flour to the mass. After removing from the heat, transfer the mass to a container lined with paper and refrigerate for about 15 minutes. After this time, cut the mass into smaller portions and wrap in paper.
How much do the most popular nuts cost?
The average cost of buying walnuts is about 4 PLN for 100 g. For hazelnuts, it will be 5 PLN, and for peanuts about 1.5 PLN. However, some nuts can be very expensive. For example, 100 g of almonds cost 9 PLN, and pistachios even 13 PLN. To save money, it’s worth checking out online stores that specialize in selling nuts. Buying these products in bulk can result in a significantly lower price.
