Pine Nuts- Another Healthy Paleo Choice!

DownloadedFilePine nuts are actually a seed that many people might forget about when compared to the more popular cashews, walnuts & macadamias!

Not only are they a great addition to dishes like sauteed rapini with tomatoes, pesto or roasted and scattered on top of a fresh piece of salmon, they’re packed with nutrients!

-They're a great source of polyunsaturated fat (pinolenic acid).

-An excellent source of fiber, vitamins E, K, and niacin, magnesium and potassium.

-High in mono unsaturated fats, the same “heart healthy” fats that make nuts and olive oil so beneficial. 

– Great source of  antioxidants.

Because of their high acid content, they can go rancid quickly when you buy them already shelled, so keep them fresh longer by keeping them refrigerated.

Give them a try anywhere you'd normally opt for another nut or seed- the more variety, the better!
