Nuts are bite-size nutritional powerhouses, that are packed with heart-healthy fats, protein, vitamins and minerals. Nuts are also a good source of dietary fibre. Consuming a palmful of raw nuts every day as a snack or thrown into salads etc is a great way to add nutrients to your diet. If you fancy an even nicer treat, here is a great way to jazz up the raw nuts with seeds, rosemary, honey, spices and seasoning.
