Nuts Over Nuts


From left to right : Raw organic brazil nuts, raw white pumpkin seeds, raw organic green pumpkin seeds, Menglembu groundnuts and raw almonds.

That’s my stock of nuts and seeds. Since I am on a high protein and low carb diet, nuts and seeds are the best and most convenient snacks to munch on to rid myself of hunger pangs. Nuts and seeds are rich in Vitamin E, Vitamin B, zinc, fibre, magnesium, protein, selenium, iron, phosphorus, etc. etc. However eating too much may cause gout as they are high in protein. Since I am on a high protein diet, I drink juice from half a lemon every morning as lemon juice is known to neutralize uric acid (caused by protein). Yup, i kid you not, i am a real health nut and i am nuts over nuts.
