The hazelnut - most of us probably associate them covered in chocolate, but they boast a host of health benefits too - they contain mainly monounsaturated fats. They also contain the highest amount of dietary fibre of all the tree nuts, w a 30g serve providing more than 10% of the recommended intake. An excellent source of vit E and rich in antioxidants (particularly the hazelnut skins) which are beneficial for heart health.

Nuts - they may be small but they sure do pack a punch. Nuts are like natures own vitamin pill, containing at least 28 different essential nutrients including vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and other phytochemicals important for good health. Regram image via @feedyourfuturedietetics

It's still cold outside, so starting the day with a warm hearty breakfast will help set you up for the day ahead. And to make it even better, add some hazelnuts as @cookrepublic has done w her beautiful Hazelnut & butter porridge. Nuts add crunch, taste and of course heaps of health benefits too.

Adding nuts to smoothies is a great way to get your handful of nuts in, and will also add fibre & protein, helping you to feel fuller. Thanks to @ausmacadamias for the gorgeous pic
