Nuts make your brain swell, not your belly. Their low 'glycemic index' keeps you satisfied. You're peckish: say you choose a chocolate éclair rather than strawberries dipped in nut butter. Both snacks contain the same number of calories, but the éclair will send signals to your brain advising you for more, whilst also reducing your insulin resistance. Choose the fruit/nut snack in the first place and this won't happen.

CASHEW NUTS are high in magnesium (known to improve memory), iron (for dispersing oxygen around the body) and zinc (for body repair). They're roasted before blending, to add a particularly deep, nutty flavour to each spoonful - and a little crunch too...

BRAZIL NUTS are high in selenium (for regulating your hormones), essential fats (for improving heart health) and vitamin E (for good skin health). Their natural 'creaminess' contributes to a particularly silky spread...

COCONUT FLAKES is high in medium chain triglyceride (MCT) fats - good for brain health, your metabolism and digestive tract. As a result, rather than make you fat, their high fat content actually aids in fat loss. High in a number of vitamins & minerals, including manganese, potassium & vitamin C.

ALMONDS are rich in the all-important B vitamins (especially Riboflavin - which helps to seamlessly convert food into energy) & vitamin E - keeping your skin lookin' lovely and fresh... They're also high in protein (21%) and heart-healthy mono-unsaturated fats.

PUMPKIN SEEDS are 30% protein and particularly rich in magnesium, iron, zinc, manganese & phosphorus. Their deep flavour after roasting lends a suitably deep, nutritious undertone to the Carob, Gingerbread & Espresso varieties. Green giant.
