Nuts are a healthier snack choice and eating in moderation is key. As a natural food, nuts are excellent sources of healthy fats, vitamins and minerals that can boost your health in many ways including reduced risk of weight gain, improve heart health and lower risk of diabetes. Choose raw, organic nuts to add to your diet.
Each type of nut offers a different mix of nutrients for your health.

Gluten free Kasha Salad with Grapes, Dried Mango and Pistachios
Don’t want to include buckwheat into your main dish? Why not make it salad style. Wholesome and easy to prepare! Grapes, mango, with pistachios and honey dressing. Other than pistachios, i think cashew or walnuts would be great too. Kasha is also called Roasted Buckwheat.
