Help save the rainforest

Nuts make a great snack to keep you going between meals and Brazil nuts in particular are especially good for you. They’re an excellent source of the mineral selenium, a powerful antioxidant which can slow down the ageing process, stimulate the immune system and help protect women from developing beast cancer. Eating seven or eight nuts just three times a week can also reduce the risk of heart disease. Like all nuts, Brazils are packed with protein, fibre, zinc and magnesium. Eating them can also help keep the Amazon rainforests alive – Brazil nuts trees, which grow wild are  now legally protected from loggers and help communities make a living from the forest without destroying it. Sprinkle chopped Brazil nuts on to yogurt, or just munch a handful for a healthy, nutritious snack.
