- Brazil Nut Butter: An adequate alternative to the traditional peanut or almond butter, Brazil nut butter delivers a creamy, slightly sweet flavor and is packed with selenium, a powerful antioxidant.
- Whole Wheat Tortilla: A soft, pliable base for our wrap. It’s not just a vehicle for the filling but adds its own subtle flavor and is rich in fibers.
- Seasonal Fruits: The natural sweetness, tang, and freshness of fruits like pear, apple, peach, and berries transform this wrap into a delightful treat. Each fruit brings its own nutritional profile and unique taste to the table.
- Ground Cinnamon: A spice that adds warmth and an aromatic sweetness, complementing both the nut butter and fruits.
Health Benefits of Brazil Nuts
Brazil nuts aren’t just tasty; they’re a nutritional powerhouse. Bursting with selenium, they help support a healthy immune system and regulate thyroid function. Additionally, they offer heart-healthy unsaturated fats and are a natural source of magnesium, copper, and zinc. And to top it off, including them in your diet can benefit skin health and combat oxidative stress!
