Nuts about peanuts!

Packed with vitamins and minerals, plus a great source of protein, what’s not to love about the humble peanut, asks Nutrition Editor Eve Kalinik?

Peanuts, it’s fair to say, are famous for the most popular and well-known nut butter on the planet. However, contrary to their namesake and ‘nut-oriety’, peanuts are not actually nuts. They are, in fact, from the legume family – which includes lentils, peas and beans – because they grow in pods that mature underground. Peanuts are an excelle nt source of plant-based protein and contain fibre that helps to sustain energy and nourish our gut microbiome. They also provide biotin and vitamin E that help to support skin health, as well as an abundance of other minerals, including magnesium, copper and zinc. Peanuts are an excellent source of oleic acid, a type of monounsaturated fat, which has been linked with a lower risk of cardiovascular disease and attributed to an overall healthier heart. What’s more, they contain resveratrol – famously linked to red wine – which is a type of protective antioxidant.

About Psychologies

When we change our minds, we change our lives. This issue explores what happens when we do just this. What if you didn’t resign from a job, but could change the way you feel about it? Or what about finding a new way to open up to love? Or, what happens when we challenge the judgements we make about ourselves and each other? Read the astonishing life-changing effects of what happens when you think differently.   Change doesn’t always feel positive - you're made redundant, or your relationship breaks down, or we lose someone we love. And it's awful. Yes, we don’t always have control over what happens out there, but we always have control over how we react to it. This issue explores how to change our perspective to create the world we want.
