Pine Nuts

Pine nuts (not surprisingly) come from pine cones.  They are usually hand-harvested, which explains the high cost of pine nuts – if you can find them at all at your local health food store.

Despite the name, pine nuts are not nuts at all – they are seeds.  In fact, they are one of the healthiest seeds on earth, offering the following health benefits:

1. Rich in Vitamins A and lutein, thus good for your vision
2. heart-friendly monounsaturated fat.
3. High in Vitamin D, helping you build strong bones
4. Rich in Vitamin C, boosting immunity
5.Very high in protein
7. Rich in iron

Pine nuts have huge health benefits and no drawbacks. Eat them!
