Holiday Spiced Nuts
These holiday spiced nuts are great to have for the holiday season. They make an amazing sweet and salty snack and are essential to have on hand if any guests pop on over for a holiday visit. Maybe make a double batch if you’re like me and you plow through the whole container before the holiday season even starts.
I did a mix of pecans, almonds, cashews and brazil nuts. The pecans turned out amazing, I will definitely put more pecans in there next time. I also like to throw in a few brazil nuts because they are an amazing source of selenium which can be hard to come by. One brazil nut is your daily dose! Selenium is one of the minerals that is really important for thyroid health, which has a huge impact on your energy levels and metabolism. Pair that with some iodine rich foods and you have a winning formula.
Nuts in general are great sources of many vitamins and minerals like zinc, magnesium, potassium, iron, manganese and calcium. So yes you get a little of sweetness but you also get some healthy fats, protein, and an abundance of nutrients.
