October 26, 2018

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.‎

Suppressing your appetite

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.‎

Boosting your energy

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.‎
