Adding roasted pine nuts to stuff your samosas, prepare a creamy pesto salad or top your chicken kabsa will add a delicious nutty flavor. But that’s not all! We rounded up additional reasons to add a small handful of pine nuts to your daily diet.
Researches show that consuming around 3g of pine nuts a day will suppress your appetite and make you feel full for a longer time. The main reason for that feeling is that the fatty acids contained in the pine nuts release high amounts of an appetite suppressing hormone. If you’re on a diet and trying to lose weight, make sure to use non-stick pots and pans such as Essential Chef De France to roast your nuts without the need to add any oil.
The fat, proteins and iron that you can find in the pine nuts help in boosting your energy. In addition to that, the magnesium found in this ingredient helps you fight the fatigue that might occur when your body is low in magnesium. Doctors highly recommend adding this kind of nuts to your daily diet to improve your energy specially when trying to lose weight.
