Creamy crunchy and loaded with good fats, macadamias are an amazing nut. Just one handful gives you vitamin A, iron, protein, and vitamins B1, B2 and B3. They contain flavonoids, compounds naturally found in plants which help repair damaged cells. Palmitoleic acid is a monounsaturated fatty acid that speeds up fat metabolism and is found in macadamias. These nuts are great to use in salad dressings and dessert snacks.
