Do you eat nuts?
If not, I’d strongly encourage you to! The health benefits of nuts are endless. They pack protein and most contain unsaturated fats, omega 3 fatty acids, fibre, and vitamin E. Consuming these nutrients helps support brain function, blood sugar levels, and will give you the energy you need to get through your day and help you sleep at night. Unlike lots of other food suggestions, nuts are so easy to eat! If you buy them without shells, they require no preparation to consume and they’re easy to take with you wherever you go. Try eating a handful instead of grabbing a muffin or a coffee and see if you notice a difference in how you feel 2-3 hours after eating them.
