Chocolate covered macadamia nuts and pecans. Nuts contain numerous nutrients that have a beneficial effect on the body’s functioning. The healthiest nuts in terms of unsaturated fatty acids are macadamia nuts and pecans. Macadamia nuts lower cholesterol and slow down skin aging. Pecans have a beneficial effect on the nervous system, and are also recommended for the prevention of lifestyle diseases.
A characteristic feature of macadamia nuts is the hard shell, which even a nutcracker may not cope with. Sometimes manufacturers even attach a special key to the packaging, which can be used to open a nut. Fortunately, the effort is rewarded by the unique taste of a snack such as nuts in chocolate.
