Chestnuts For Healthy Aging

Chestnuts are the only nuts that are low in fat, although the fat contained in other nuts is the “good fat”. Thus they are low in calories, containing about one-fourth fewer calories than walnuts and hazelnuts.

Chestnuts contain monounsaturated fatty acids, which are good for the heart. So next the time you enjoy some roasted chestnuts, you can do so with not second thoughts. You are helping your heart stay healthy.

In Europe you can find roasted chestnuts for sale on street corners. They help to keep your hands warm and your heart healthy. Or, roast your own chestnuts at home.
