Going nuts over peanuts

Sometimes you just want to get nutty!

Okay! We’ll be the first to admit that peanuts get a bad rap. From “they are high in calories and fat!” to rumours that they cause acne, they just can’t seem to catch a break. But guess what you need as a beauty secret and health booster? Peanuts. Why? They have great health benefits. Yep!

First off, peanuts are rich in fiber, antioxidants, vitamins, especially vitamin E, and minerals. They also have monounsaturated fats, which are good fats that help keep your heart strong and protects from heart diseases.

The antioxidants and vitamin E are key to cellular regeneration and healthy skin and hair. You heard us. The so-called worst snack ever is actually your skin and hair’s bestie. So cool!

And last — but definitely not least — the fiber is very good for your stomach and digestive system.

You know what’s even cooler about peanuts? They are a cheap snack...and there’s many ways to enjoy them. For instance, next time you cook spinach or morogo, add a bit of peanuts butter.
