The Top 9 Nuts to Eat for Better Health

The Top 9 Nuts to Eat for Better Health | Vegetarian and Vegan | Scoop.it
“ Nuts are packed full of beneficial nutrients that may reduce your risk of many diseases. Here is a detailed review of the 9 healthiest nuts on the planet.”

Sandi Cornez's curator insight, December 6, 2016 12:27 AM

Did you know that about a quarter of a cup of nuts eaten daily may extend your life by up to two years? This according to Dr Michael Greger in his award winning book, “How Not to Die”. The Global Burden of Disease Study found that not eating enough nuts and seeds was the third leading dietary risk factor for death and disability in the world, killing more people than processed meat consumption.

 

Which nut is the healthiest? Walnut win. But if walnuts aren’t your thing, then eat nuts that you like. Walnuts do have the highest antioxidant and omega 3 essential fatty acid levels. Walnuts help prevent cancer deaths.

 

In the PREDIMED study, one of the largest interventional dietary trials ever performed found that people who ate nuts tended to live longer and suffer fewer death from cancer, heart disease, and respiratory disease. Interventional studies randomize participants to different diets to see who fares better.

 

Seven thousand mean and women at high cardiovascular risk were given a free half pound of nuts every week for four years. You’d probably eat eat nuts too in this case. They were also told to improve their diets such as consuming more veggies and fruits and less mats and dairy. Dr Greger says they weren’t as successful at any of the other goals compared to the control group.

 

They were already eating about a half an ounce and now with the free nuts, they ate a whole ounce (about a handful). The added nuts group did end up having significantly fewer strokes. All the dietary groups were eating stroke promoting diets. For those not willing to make major shifts in the food they consumed, except for the addition of nuts, they still appeared to cut their stroke risk in half.

 

Those in the extra nut eating group still had strokes, but only about half as many. Dr Greger says that if people followed this regimen, about eighty-nine thousand strokes could be avoided a year in the U.S. Just by adding about four walnuts, almonds, and hazelnuts to their meals.

 

Those who consumed more of these fats, such as olive oil or extra virgin olive oil failed to have any survival benefit. Using these oils is better than consuming animal fats.

 

Health Tips:  Eating more than three servings of walnuts a week appears to cut the risk of dying from cancer in half. Adding walnuts to a plant based real whole food regimen may be the best thing you can do for your health.

 

As you know peanuts are considered legumes which are extremely healthy for you. Harvard University  researchers asked people in the Nurses’ Health Study about their peanut butter intake. They found that women at high risk for heart disease who ate nuts or a tablespoon of peanut butter five or more days a week appeared to “nearly halve their risk of suffering from a heart attack compared to women who ate a serving or less per week”.

 

This cross-protection between tree nuts and peanuts extends to fibrocystic breast disease. Adolescent girls in high school appear to have significantly lower risk of developing lumpy breasts, which can be a marker for increased breast cancer risk. DIY for the peanut butter and/or avoid PB with sugar and oil added.

 

Yes nut butters have extra calories, but also come with nutrition. So if you’re going to eat sugary cookies, cakes, and pies, choose two tablespoons of nut butter instead. Or choose to eat a ton of raw or steamed veggies with hardly any calories.

 

There have been about twenty clinical trials on nuts and weight and not a single one showed weight gain. All of the studies showed less weight gain than predicted, no weight gain at all, or weight loss. Nuts take a lot of work to eat, they are satiating and good at suppressing appetite so you may eat less. 

 

And when you eat nuts, you burn more of your own fat. Eating more walnuts helps you to burn even more fat.

This huge, ugly fruit is a surprisingly good meat substitute ("it's more than just a dessert")

This huge, ugly fruit is a surprisingly good meat substitute ("it's more than just a dessert") | Vegetarian and Vegan | Scoop.it

Don't know jack about replacing meat with fruit? Here's a helpful guide.

But there’s another option, one that happily satisfies both those who enjoy meat substitutes in any form and those who would rather not eat a highly processed meat imitation. That option is jackfruit: a large — enormous really — fruit found in tropical regions around the world that’s eaten both ripe and unripe. 

When it’s young and green, jackfruit works remarkably well as a natural stand-in for pork or chicken due to its meaty, shreddable texture after cooking. Ripe jackfruit is sweeter, and doesn’t work as a meat substitute, but can be eaten raw.

If you’re ready to try it yourself, you have options: fresh, canned, or packaged.

Look for fresh jackfruit in well-stocked grocery stores or international markets. If you find it sold in smaller chunks, you won’t have to try and wrestle with an entire child-sized fruit — at least this time anyway.

If you can’t find fresh jackfruit near you (or would just prefer not to go through the hassle of prepping it), you can find canned young jackfruit in Asian markets or online. Make sure to get the jackfruit packed in brine or water — not syrup! 

If you’re starting with fresh, green jackfruit or canned jackfruit, you’ll want to season it (it doesn’t have a strong flavor when unripe, which makes it a versatile ingredient) and cook it until the arils start to break down into shreds (often done by sautéing, stir-frying, or simmering in a sauce).

This is an interesting discovery for those who want to look for a meat stand-in. I never expected the jackfruit to be more than just dessert.

Did you know there’s more to greens than just spinach and lettuce? Here’s the ultimate guide to all things greens and how to prep them.

 

Dark green leafy veggies are some of the healthiest food on the planet. Sprouts and sea veggies are the other healthiest foods. Eating greens every day helps you prolong your life. Greens are associated with the strongest protection against major chronic diseases according to a team of Harvard University researchers.

 

Dark green leaves of veggies contain many other plant pigments all tied together in one package. Dark pigments are the antioxidants that help protect you from free radicals that can cause inflammation. 

 

When you eat all greens and red cabbage, red beets, orange sweet potatoes, purple eggplant, orange squash, yellow bell peppers; and other brightly colored veggies and fruits, you are eating the rainbow. When you consume a rainbow every day, you feel younger, fitter, have more vigor, and live longer.

 

Health tips: Here’s the best advice ever to prolong your health:  eat two cups of greens daily with other veggies, a big serving of legumes (beans, peas, lentils), and some nuts/seeds for healthy fat. When you eat fruit add some healthy avocado for the fat. If you tolerate ancient seed grains, you can add a small serving to one of your meals.

 

When you eat sprouts, it’s real easy to add the two cups of greens everyday to your meals. You can always have unlimited refills.
