Some key nutrients: Adding good quality protein to the mix, not only gives us the essential amino acids that our bodies need to support healthy muscle tissue, growth and recovery but it is also imperative for the enzymatic reactions in the body. Protein also keeps us feeling fuller for longer as it stimulates our satiety and we feel fuller for longer.
Macadamia nuts rich in nutrients and beneficial plant compounds, adding some good much needed healthy fats to your lifestyle is key. High in your monounsaturated fats, we give our bodies the opportunity to lower bad cholesterol levels. Macadamia nuts are also a lower carb, sugar nut with moderate fiber. As we know fiber is great for keeping our gut healthy. The soluble fiber within macadamia nuts, act as a prebiotic, therefore it feeds our friendly gut bacteria.
