Nuts and seeds are a really good source of healthy fats!
The Cranberry Nut & Seed Bars are a really good source of monounsaturated fats, a healthy fat that is essential to include in our diet. Including healthy fats into snacks and meals helps to slow the process of digestion which will ultimately help to keep you feeling fuller for longer and is a healthier alternative to high-sugar snacks. Nuts and seeds are also a well-balanced source of protein, fats and carbohydrates!
Healthy fats are a good source of energy and nuts and seeds are also heart-healthy foods! This is due to their ability to lower LDL (bad) cholesterol and increase (HDL) good cholesterol, helping to reduce the risk of heart disease.
