at nuut, we love a delicious collab, so we got together with Apple from Guru Medica, an edible apothecary in South Fremantle, Perth, Western Australia to create nuuts with a real difference. Not only do they taste decadent, they are super good for you too.“
Salt gets a bad wrap these days for its lack of minerals, yet good quality salt is rich in minerals called electrolytes which are essential for fluid balance in the body,” says Apple. “The biggest cause of dehydration is lack of electrolytes from sweating – and not just during workouts but also from going about your daily activities. Adding an ancient salt to your nuut is an easy way to add those minerals back into your body.”
Different salts contain distinctive mineral profiles. Choose sea salt for its iodine, rock salt for iron, black sea salt mixed with charcoal for drawing out toxins, and pink sea salt for iodine and a touch of merlot which is wonderful for the soul.
“I always say, you have to look after the body, but you have to look after the soul too,” says Apple.
Almonds are a fantastic source of protein and vitamins. “They are rich in Vitamin E – an emollient nutrient that is essential for keeping the skin hydrated,” says Apple. “They are also rich in polyunsaturated fats that optimise brain, nerve and heart health”.
