Nuts and Seeds FAQS
Nuts and seeds are simple, nutritious, all-natural foods that are easy to carry around with you and eat anywhere, so they’re pretty much the ideal snacking food. They’re also rich in nutrients that are important for fitness and training, like protein and healthy fats, so it doesn’t get much better.
The benefits of eating nuts and seeds are similar to eating any kind of healthy food, but they have some special benefits too. Firstly, they’re high in fibre, particularly nuts, meaning they’re a great way to support healthy day-to-day digestion. They’re also rich in nutrients, vitamins and minerals, making them a great way to get your daily nutritional intake from a natural source.
Nuts and seeds are possibly some of the healthiest snacks you can find. However, nuts are typically rich in healthy fats, so you should consume them in moderation if you’re concerned about consuming too many carbs or fats. As with any foods, even healthy ones, the key is to consume them in moderation, as part of a balanced, varied diet with an active lifestyle.
Because of their high protein, fat and fibre content, most of the popular nuts you encounter in the supermarket are very healthy, and are an ideal snack for between meals. Some nuts that are particularly popular among health-conscious consumers include almonds, cashews and walnuts, due to their rich nutritional profiles.
Nuts and seeds are some of the simplest, most natural food staples around, used in all kinds of daily foods like breakfast cereals, porridge, salads and other healthy dishes. So of course they’re perfectly fine to eat every day – their high fibre content even makes eating some amount of nuts each day a great idea! Just remember that calories from healthy foods are still calories, so you should still eat them in moderation.
Many nuts are high in protein, making them a super popular food source for vegan and meat-free trainers. In fact, some nuts have a similar protein content to common meats. Peanuts, for example, contain around 28g of protein per 100g, while cashews, walnuts and almonds all provide at least 16g of protein per 100g – similar to soya beans.
Nuts and seeds are suitable for most dietary requirements, with a few exceptions. Firstly, if you suffer from any kind of nut allergy, it goes without saying that nuts and seeds won’t be appropriate for you. Similarly, if you experience any kind of long-term digestive condition (for example, IBS), some nuts contain compounds and nutrients that may cause digestive issues. If you have any doubts, consult with your doctor or another medical professional before consuming nuts and seeds.
Nuts and seeds are some of the most stable foods around, potentially lasting for years if they’re properly stored. As a general rule, most nuts and seeds will have a shelf life of 12 months after their date of manufacture, but you should check the individual label of any nut and seed products you have for a more precise Best Before date.
