We’re celebrating chestnut season in Australia! 

These healthy and ultra-tasty nuts are harvested from March to July each year. And we plan to incorporate fresh chestnuts into as many meals as possible! 😍 

Roasted chestnuts, with their sweet aroma and texture a bit like a roast potato (crispy on the outside, with a soft centre), are a delicious base for loads of recipes. 

Here’s how to roast chestnuts:
🌰  Preheat oven to 200°C (180°C fan-forced). 
🌰  Cut a shallow cross into the flat side of the shell (this prevents them from overheating and bursting while cooking).
🌰  Place chestnuts onto a baking tray and bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until the shells split open.
🌰  Once cooked, remove them from the heat, and wrap in a clean tea towel for 5 to 10 minutes, then peel off the outer brown shell and remove the papery thin skin underneath.

Tip: Peel chestnuts while they are still warm (this is much easier than after they’ve cooled). 

Put your roasted chestnuts to good use with this Spicy Chestnut Noodle Soup recipe!

Spiced roasted nut mix 😍 

Could this be the perfect snack to beat the 3pm slump, help fill you up until dinner, and meet your daily target of 30g (or a handful) of nuts? Yes, we think so! 

Did you know? Australians who eat more nuts have significantly higher intakes of key nutrients, like fibre, vitamin E, iron, magnesium and phosphorous.

Fun fact: In Australia, the most common time to eat nuts is 3-4pm 🙌 

2/3 cup walnuts
2/3 cup cashews
2/3 cup almonds
2/3 cup pistachios 
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp smoked paprika
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp garlic powder

-  Preheat oven to 160C.
-  Place nuts on lined baking tray and put in the oven to roast for 10-12 minutes or until lightly golden. Remove from oven and set aside to cool slightly. 
-  Meanwhile, combine cumin, smoked paprika, onion powder and garlic powder in a small bowl and stir to combine. Add salt to taste. 
-  Toss nuts through spice mix, and store in an air-tight container once cooled. 

Tip: You can swap in different nuts, like macadamias or pecans, to this recipe to suit your individual taste.

Crack the Code on Weight Management!

Think nuts can't fit into your weight management plan? Think again! Despite being energy-dense, studies show eating a handful of nuts (30g) daily is linked with less weight gain and a lower risk of obesity.

In a nutshell, nuts are a key nutrient-dense food within healthy dietary patterns, with an impressive range of health benefits. Despite this, most Australians aren’t eating enough nuts, with just 2% meeting the target of a healthy handful a day.
