Pine nuts are a little dose of heaven when sprinkled on a salad. That soft crunch and rich taste fills the mouth and informs your body you’re eating something truly good for you. Rich in mono and polyunsaturated fats, which will help protect your heart and circulatory system while reducing cholesterol, pine nuts also pack a massive hit of minerals. Manganese is present in massive quantities, which is good because it’s very good for you. Also here are zinc, copper, phosphorus, magnesium and iron, each essential for your healthy body. And don’t forget all the vitamins, there’s nearly all of those too!
