Nuts are rich in nutrients. There is a large variety of nuts, and you can always add extra to this salad or make substitutions suit your taste.

Walnuts contain a high content of healthy omega-3 fats. They also contain tryptophane which is calming in times of stress or if you are upset. Almonds are also amazing. You should eat 7-10 fresh raw almonds daily. They lower bad cholesterol, and are said to aid in the reduction of heart risks. They also build strong teeth and bones plus they lower the rise in blood sugar and insulin after meals.

It is important that you use RAW, organic nuts. Roasted and salted nuts are NOT going to give you the benefits, so for those of you that buy these types of nuts thinking you are making a healthy choice eating nuts, sorry, but they are only good when raw.

If you really want your nuts toasted then do so in a low oven of 160F-170F and for only 15-20 minutes.
