I just harvested these beauties from my own macadamia tree and had these sun baked for days in my front yard. These look absolutely amazing,” says Dr. Cat.
This is one of the healthiest nuts, raw or otherwise, and are great for heart health and lowering stroke risk. Macadamia nuts originated in Australia, with the highest production coming from Hawaii. Macadamias are now grown in many countries and the trees requiring moderate sun and plenty of water. Like many other nuts, they have a high “fat” content, but it’s really good fat – HDL. (It is the LDL that you do not want.)
After work or for a quick snack, I just go to my macadamia tree and pick up the fallen dried nuts. With my nut cracker, I simply enjoy away. This is a no guilt snack,” says Dr. Cat.
It is important to moderate carb intake and have more complex carbs vs. simple carbs. Other healthy nutrients in macadamia nuts include the amino acid l-arginine, vitamin B1, and magnesium. The macadamia nuts are an excellent source of manganese and thiamin while being low in carbohydrates.
