Nuts and Goji Berries – Superfood Snack Time
Pure organic nuts like cashews, macadamias, almonds, and Brazil nuts are truly the candy of nature, but most don’t realize how good they are for you. Honestly, you simply must add in goji berries to complete the superfood snackin’. It’s easy to sneak the best tree nuts into your day-to-day diet. Let us break down our favorite nutty superfoods, their benefits, and how to incorporate them when you’re low on time.
Organic Whole Cashews
Move over, cauliflower. Cashews are having their moment right now as one of the most versatile foods. You’ll love cashews raw and unsalted. They’re a bare canvas for any and all flavors or uses, sauces, salads, smoothies, desserts–you name it, you can probably make it out of cashews. Eat them raw and organic right from the bag.
Outside of their versatility, they’re a source of healthy fats to keep you satiated for hours. They’re also an excellent source of magnesium, as well as a lesser-known source of zinc, vitamin B12, iron, vitamin B6, and vitamin K.
Organic Macadamia Nuts
Macadamia nuts are like the cashew’s fancy, buttery cousin. These are also a great source of manganese. Manganese is an essential mineral that we can’t produce, so we need to get it from foods. Why not organic macadamias? You’ll be happy to know they also contain magnesium, thiamine, and potassium.
Nowadays, everyone’s making homemade nut milk out of any nuts or seeds available. Have you tried homemade organic macadamia nut milk? Without delay, mix 1 cup of the raw nuts with 4 cups of purified water and blend on high until frothy milk is created. Use it in cereals, smoothies, or baking. You’re welcome!
Organic Heirloom Almonds
A crowd favorite, almonds are a great source of vitamin E, which is a powerful antioxidant and great for your skin. Magnesium, iron, calcium, and potassium are also bundled into this small but mighty nut.
Outside of eating these like popcorn, there are so many creative ways to incorporate a serving here and there into recipes. Chocolate covered almonds, homemade granola, protein energy bites–oh my! They’re also the original nut of nut milk, so they’ll always have that claim to fame. Choose nothing less than organic heirloom almonds.
Organic Brazil Nuts
Brazil nuts are primarily harvested in…you guessed it, Brazil. At Sunfood, they pop one or two of these raw beauties each morning with their vitamins as a key source of selenium. One serving has 350% of your daily recommended value. Selenium is an antioxidant that’s primarily tied to optimal brain function but has also been studied for its benefits in skin health, immune support, and heart disease. Nature packs all this into beautiful organic Brazil nuts.
C This – Organic Goji Berries
Bring out the best in your nut mix with an addition of goji berry superfood. At a glance, raw goji berries look similar to an oversized red raisin. However, these little vitamin C powerhouses pack a nutritious punch. They’re plump, red, and chewy, delivering a nutritional punch.
You can eat them straight, as they’re delicious on their own. They taste like a cross between a cranberry and a cherry. (Try one, you’ll understand.) You’ll especially love them as a topper for smoothie bowls, as a chewy component in cookies, or in a handful of homemade trail mix. With the newfound spotlight on immune health, incorporate C-rich berries into your tea blends.
Our go-to way of enjoying the berries is just straight up, but they’re also great to throw into smoothies or into your food processor to incorporate them as a dessert base. Let your food be your medicine!
Begin your autumn harvest immediately! Clearly, nuts and fruit are classic together. Choose the best quality raw, organic nuts you can find. At the same time, complement them with organic goji berries. Start natural living again.
