When I was a little girl I wasn’t allowed to eat nuts because they were considered a choking risk for small children. Back then, and possibly now too, parents were advised not to give nuts to children under five.
But you know how it is, the more you’re told you can’t have something, the more desirable it becomes.
I remember my excitement at being allowed my first crisp, oily, salty peanuts. Later, I discovered buttery pecans and macadamias, oh-so-wonderful-with-chocolate hazelnuts, and complex, slightly bitter walnuts.
My love affair with nuts continues to this day, fueled by the knowledge that nuts are a guilt-free super snack packed with nutritional goodness.
You can imagine how excited I was to be asked by Nuffnang to review the Lucky Smart Snax range, which includes six delicious and healthy products specifically formulated to meet individual needs — there is a mix to suit every body!
Lucky Smart Snax Cardio: almonds, sultanas, cranberries and blueberries. This mix of crunchy natural almonds and tangy berries is my favourite Lucky Smart product and is sure to keep me pumping throughout my busy days.
Lucky Smart Snax Power: oven roasted peanuts, almonds, walnuts, hazelnuts and dark chocolate. My second favourite, purely because of the addition of dark chocolate — what’s not to love?
Lucky Smart Snax Digestive: oven roasted almonds, peanuts, hazelnuts, cranberries, sunflower kernels and pepitas. A source of dietary fibre to help maintain a healthy digestive system.
Lucky Smart Snax Recovery: oven roasted almonds, peanuts, cashews and pepitas. A good source of protein, a vital nutrient that is important for body systems, growth, muscle development and recovery from exercise.
Lucky Smart Snax Women: cashews, almonds, brazil nuts and walnuts. A source of Vitamin E, iron and good monounsaturated fat, as well as calcium, folate and selenium — for all the busy women out there.
Lucky Smart Snax are sold at Coles, Woolworths and independent supermarkets in the dried fruit and nut aisle (near the sultanas and the other Lucky nut baking products). RRP: $4.99.
