Pine Nuts / Chilgoza - During Winters

While all of us are mostly aware of the health benefits of eating beetroots and almonds during winters, not many people are aware of the other wintery food that is also very nutritious- pine nuts. Also known as chilgoza in Hindi, pine nuts are loaded with essential vitamins and minerals.

Here are some benefits of eating pine nuts during winters:
1. Regulates mood: These nuts are loaded with magnesium, which helps keep winter blues and depressive moods away.
2. Regulates blood sugar levels: The presence of unsaturated fatty acids in pine nuts makes it great for the heart, as well as for regulating blood sugar levels.
3. Keeps you alert: Pine nuts are rich in iron, which keeps the brain alert and drives away sluggishness during winters.
4. Boosts skin health: Pine nuts are replete with healthy fats and antioxidants, which are both important for boosting skin health and slowing down skin-ageing.
Pine nuts are however, extremely high in calories- a 100 gm of the nutty seeds pack as many as 673 calories (as per USDA data). So make sure you only eat a few pine nuts in a day. Do you include pine nuts in your winter diet? Let us know in the comments section below!
