ALMONDS

One of the best nutritional changes you can make is adding 1 oz (~23) of nuts to your daily diet. Almonds are high in fibre, healthy fats, vitamins, and minerals like magnesium. A recent review of over 800,000 people found that just 1 small handful of nuts daily reduced heart disease rates by 21% and cancers by 15%! Diabetes was reduced 40% and infectious diseases 75%. Simply put, when you eat almonds (or other nuts that you enjoy), good things happen!

Cooking for kids? Introduce flavours slowly to children. When introducing a new flavour – like parmesan. you can encourage children to try it at different temperatures: cold from the fridge and warm on the pasta. It may take many exposures for a child to learn to like a new flavour or texture. Making this recipe with kids? Ask the child to contribute by helping with these steps:
  • 2: Separate the mint leaves.
  • 5: Add the chicken to the linguine and combine.
  • 6: Serve and garnish their dish.
