During this holiday season, chestnuts will not be the only legumes roasting on our open fire. Nuts are packed with protein and minerals to sustain your energy all season long. Here are a few of the nuts we go nuts for here at Urban Remedy.

Cashews: Power-packed with minerals like manganese, potassium, copper, and iron, cashews are a perfect snack to fuel your body on a cold winter’s day. Minerals keep your bones strong and your impulses sharp. They also keep your hormones balanced. Relax and sip some cashew milk before bed and dream sweet!

Walnuts: Proud members for the tree nut family, walnuts are a perfect snack to boost heart health and protect against type 2 diabetes. Rich in Vitamin E and Omega-3 fatty acids, these legumes decrease your bad cholesterol, refueling your bloodstream with goodness. They can also lower your risk for excessive clotting. Quickly caramelized and tossed in a salad? Well don’t mind if we do!

Almonds: Did you know an efficient bloodstream makes for an energized body?Hearty and protein-rich Almonds help alkalize the blood and relieve qi stagnation in the liver. This process cleanses your whole body, helping your bloodstream function more efficiently. At Urban Remedy, almonds make our brownies, cookies, and brittles extra delicious. We know what your friends are getting for the holidays…
