Good-for-you facts

As much as we love veg, there are some things you just can’t get from your five (or eight, or ten…) a day. Nuts are a great source of protein, and essential fats that are good for lowering cholesterol. Different nuts also offer the benefits of different vitamins and minerals. Cashew nuts have lots of protein, as well as minerals like iron and zinc, which makes them extra good for vegetarians.
