Macadamia nuts: ooh, la, la! Everyone I know used to drool over those branded gift boxes or sacks from relatives' trips to Hawaii. It was what you were expected to bring back for the poor saps at home who didn't get a flower necklace on their last vacation. But along comes Sunfood and blows those tourist nuts out of the water, serving up a fresh and crisp little orb of healthy fat. Macadamias are what fat aspires to be: snackable and cute yet exotic. Sure, all your friends are eating trail mix. This is a trail mix for those who do not have any doubts about what they like.
Did you know that macadamias are originally from Australia? Me neither. I guess we all figured that they just came from Hawaii like canned meat and flower necklaces. Regardless, macadamias are a new-ish product and they didn't come a moment too soon. The crunchy nut gets a lot of its appeal from the high fat content, oh-so-good for you and satisfying as a snack. Sunfood's nuts are raw, delicate, and perfectly untouched by all the stuff that modern farming has "given" us – things like pesticides, processing, and GMOs.
When you crack open this bag, it is all macadamia, all the time. No trail mix happening here. Just nut nut nut nut nut nut nut. And more nut. Honestly this makes me a little giddy. Take care not to eat the whole bag at once or you might spoil your healthy dinner.
In Sunfood's own words, "Delightfully fresh and crisp, macadamia nuts are an irresistible creamy treat. Harvested from evergreen trees that are grown all over the world, macadamia nuts are native to Australia where cultivation didn’t begin until the 1800s. High in vitamin B1 and manganese, they also have magnesium, iron, potassium, and vitamin B6, along with healthy omega fats and two grams of protein per serving. These exquisite nuts have a light crunch and a buttery flavor that your whole family will love."
As far as nutrition, macadamia nuts are pretty awesome:
Enjoy these nuts and give thanks to Sunfood.
Years ago, a group of health minded individuals noticed an alarming trend in their towns and communities. They saw friends and family eating and drinking dead, processed foods full of chemicals. They knew that this was the path to obesity and disease, ultimately leading to western medicine’s suppression of symptoms with drugs and scalpels. This is not true healing.
