While there are countless, insanely powerful health benefits of adding these darling nuts to your regular nourishment, here are just 5 key reasons you should go nuts for macadamias!
- Good Fats
We like to think macadamias are the “avocado of the nut world.” Similar to avocados, macadamias contain the ‘good fats’ your body needs to keep you fuller longer. Macadamias are rich in monounsaturated fatty acids (MUFAs) like Omega 7 and 9, and a balanced source of polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) like Omega 3 and 6, that can aid in your body’s natural ability to absorb essential nutrients that aid in healing, digestion, and cell production.
- Low Carb, Low Sugar
Macadamias are more than just a health food trend. They are a perfect superfood for lifestyle diets that require a low-glycemic index and low cholesterol because a serving of macadamias has roughly 4 grams of carbs, 2 grams of fiber, and only 1.3 grams of sugar. Additionally, the Omega fatty acids can help lower your cholesterol so you have comfort knowing your diet is well balanced. Macadamias are one of the few nuts that have a low enough carb count to include in keto and low-GI eating plans.
- Fight Inflammation
Macadamias help promote overall health because their ‘good fats’ can help fight inflammation caused by lifestyle activities, infection, or injury. Macadamias are an ideal wholefood for supporting your body’s natural healing system which impacts all aspects of your daily well-being. Plus, their incredible taste means you help support your body’s physical healing while enjoying a simply delicious wholefood. Now that’s a balance we can all get on board with!
- Plant-Based Wholefood
Macadamia nuts are one of nature’s plant-based gifts. The natural and wholesome quality of macadamias makes them a great way to balance your nutrition while also remaining conscious of your ecological footprint whether you are a vegan, vegetarian, flexitarian, or conscious carnivore. Additionally, macadamia shells and husks are often repurposed as mulch for future trees to thrive. So you can enjoy a superfood that feels indulgent, with the added benefit of supporting a sustainable product!
The decadent and creamy texture, paired with its delightful crunch, makes macadamias one of the most versatile nuts. From a savory macadamia-crusted chicken, fish, or tofu to a granola base or the joy of eating them as a raw wholefood, macadamias can be the hero of your breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks. Talk about a well-rounded and versatile food!
