Macadamia nuts are delicious and should be included in every healthy diet. Eat a handful of them as a snack or sprinkle them on you salad. They are often not recommended for their high fat content, however, fat in macadamia nuts is healthy and will [help you stay full for longer while providing healthy fats.

Great Source of Heart-Healthy MUFA

Macadamia nuts are one of the only food sources that contain palmitoleic acid, a type of monounsaturated fatty acid that may speed up fat metabolism, thus reducing the body’s ability to store fat. Macadamia nuts are also naturally sating and will help you keep hunger at bay.

About 80% of the fat in macadamia nuts is heart-healthy monounsaturated fat and they also contain omega 3 fatty acids. Macadamia oil is even healthier than olive oil and has a higher smoke point (i.e. it can be cooked at higher temperatures without burning).

Great Source of Antioxidants

Another health benefit of macadamia nuts comes from their content of flavonoids, which act as antioxidants in our body. They help lower blood pressure and are often claimed to protect against some types of cancer.

I changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.
