Nutritionist’s Notebook: nuts

Viva! Health’s Grace Forsythe explores the health benefits of nuts

Some people avoid nuts due to their high fat content – but are all fats equal? Eating even small amounts regularly is associated with some pretty big health benefits, including lower blood cholesterol levels and reduced risk of cardiovascular disease and metabolic syndrome (precursor to diabetes).

Heart health

Nuts have been linked to heart health for a long time, largely thanks to their cholesterol and triglyceride-lowering potential, which helps to prevent the build-up of fatty plaques on the inside of blood vessels. These plaques can result from a diet high in saturated fat and reduce the flexibility and flow through blood vessels. The result is an increase in blood pressure and possible heart attacks, strokes and vascular dementia if not treated. Just think of it like a hose becoming blocked – the pressure builds up as water struggles to pass through the blockage.

About PlantBased

I think I say it every year, but where does the time go? Once summer is over and we’re back in a routine, the months just seem to slip away, and before we know it, we’re staring another festive season in the face. But let’s not wish the time away – November is a great month in and of itself, and not only on a personal level (your PlantBased editor here celebrates her birthday this month). The weather has taken a distinct turn for the chilly, meaning that all of those lovely scarves, hats and gloves that have been packed away can come out again. And is it just me, or does food taste better in the colder months of the year? We’re celebrating the season with a selection of winter pies and tarts in this issue, with sweet and savoury choices to suit everyone. If you thought you had to give up pork pies as a vegan, don’t despair, our No Pork Pies (p48) are just what you need. We’re also celebrating Diwali with a truly epic Indian feast, and we’re indulging our sweet tooth again with some delectable desserts. And to make each pay packet count, we’ve got a selection of budget recipes that won’t break the bank. With breakfast ideas, and weekend treats, PlantBased has you covered for all of your cooking inspiration this month! Enjoy the issue.
