A Christmas Nuts Gift Box is what you need! What is Christmas without nuts?!
This time of the year is all about spending time with family and closest friends, indulgence, and delicious food. For this special Christmas offer, we’ve picked our sweet types of Christmas nuts gift box to make your festive time even better.
If you’re looking for a food gift this Christmas, these gourmet nuts are exactly what you need. Two large bags of activated nuts:
- cashews maple and rosemary,
- and our award-winning walnuts salted maple caramel.
They make a great present for anyone, who loves snacking on nuts. You can also add the individual bags to a gift basket as an addition to other delicious gifts for your foodie friends.
The best thing about these two products is that they are not only a sweet treat, but also a healthy snack. We flavour them slightly with maple syrup to make them sweet enough to satisfy your sweet tooth, but the sugars in them are still low enough to keep the calorie count as low as possible – this in case you count calories at Christmas time at all. We don’t. 😊
If you are hosting a party, our Christmas nuts gift box is a must for your food shopping list. These nuts go very well as a snack with a glass of red wine, champagne or with a nice cup of tea. You can serve each type of nuts, or you can also easily prepare a mixed nuts snack to treat your guests.
Both products are suitable for vegans and are naturally free from gluten and dairy.
Why are nuts good for us? Here are some of the health benefits of walnuts and cashews:
Nuts are a good source of fat, fibre and protein. Even though fat has been considered as an enemy of every diet until recently, the fat contained in nuts is a healthy one. Most of the fat in nuts is monounsaturated fat, as well as omega-6 and omega-3 polyunsaturated fat.
Polyunsaturated fats are a part of a healthy diet, since they can help reduce bad cholesterol levels in the blood, which can lower the risk of heart disease and stroke. They also provide nutrients to help develop and maintain your body’s cells. Further benefits of nuts come from the number of vitamins and minerals they contain, including magnesium and vitamin E.
Walnuts are particularly rich in Omega-3 fatty acids, more than any other nut, which helps reduce the risk of heart disease. They also contain Vitamin E, melatonin and polyphenols, which are the reason for the antioxidant activity of walnuts. These tasty nuts may help decrease inflammation, which is a key cause for many chronic diseases. They also promote brain and gut health and can be very beneficial for the brain development of new-borns, which makes them a great food for pregnant women and new mums.
Cashews contain a number of vitamins and minerals, which support healthy blood and immune system function.
Like other nuts, they also contain antioxidants, so important for the bodily functions. Some of these antioxidants are for example lutein and zeaxanthin. When consumed daily, these compounds can protect the eyes from the type of damage that can lead to blindness as we get older.
As you can see, when a delicious snack is also good for our health, it’s a win-win. Nuts, especially, when nicely flavoured, are the proof that healthy food can be tasty, and that we don’t need to compromise on taste, if we want to stay fit.
