Pine nuts:

clip_image012Pine nuts are not botanically referred to as nuts, but as seeds, since they are the seedlings of pinecones. Pine nuts are actually one of the higher fat nuts, and are often used in rich foods such as pesto. But don’t let their small size fool you — pine nuts are very nutrient dense, and full of vitamins A, C and D.
Health Benefits:
The best thing about pine nuts is their high concentration of monounsaturated fat, which paves the way for a healthier cardiovascular system. The vitamin D in pine nuts leads to stronger bones and teeth, by improving the body’s ability to absorb calcium, and vitamins A and C may sharpen vision and boost the immune system.
