Nuts and Seeds (Paperback)
Improving Your Health
From almonds to walnuts, chia to sunflower seeds, nuts and seeds are rising stars of the nutrition world. Rich in healthy fats, protein, vitamins, minerals, plant chemicals and the all-important fibre needed to guard against disease, diets containing nuts and seeds have long been linked with greater health and longevity.
Nuts – and seeds – are bursting with exactly the right combination of nutrients we need to keep our bodies working as they should to help us stay healthy throughout life.
The latest scientific research now suggests that just a handful of nuts a day could help you stay a healthy weight and lower your risk of type 2 diabetes, heart disease, stroke and some cancers.
Patsy Westcott scans the science and explains how including nuts and seeds in your daily diet could supercharge your health and vitality and help you age healthily.

This is a nut and seed bible, full of convincing evidence as to why we should all be eating plenty of this natural fast food. I love them anyway but it was nice to read all the health benefits for each variety. I have found a few more varieties that I currently don't eat that I am rushing out to buy. The book is very well structured and easy to read with just the right amount of information. Some lovely pictures are included... Overall an excellent book.
