Now, when you have a last name like Raison, being seen eating peanuts at school was not something I really thought about, believe me, I had enough of sticks when they bought everyone a fruit and nut cakes commercial. Remember that one? Yeah, I remember that one.

Anyway, I’m much older now and I know that nuts are too good to be avoided, even though I still laugh weirdly and love them sometimes. In fact, if you don’t have any in your closets or anywhere else in your house, then shame on you. Go get them now… wait, read the rest of the article and see what is best for you first.

Let me introduce you to my Good Health Bank which started out as a way for my clients to remember some of the great ways to keep track of their nutritional benefits.
So why the Good Health Bank?

Well, I have chosen some of the best nuts, seeds and oils combined to make a complete improvement in your health in days and it is so easy to remember. I called it the HSBC diet, hemp seeds, sesame seeds, Brazil nuts, coconut oil.

Hemp seeds are filled with the perfect ratio of omega 3 and 6 in a 1:1 ratio. With the majority of the population consuming a ratio closer to 1:10 or even 1:20, hemp seeds should play an important role in our diet.
Humble hemp also contains essential amino acids, a great source of zinc, calcium, iron and vitamin A.
For those interested, hemp seeds have no intoxicating effect.


Sesame seeds help protect the body from free radicals. They are a key source of phytic acid, (phytic acid can inhibit cancer, particularly colon cancer) magnesium and calcium, but they are also a good source of iron, phosphorus, vitamin B1 and zinc. Now the real unique quality of sesame seeds is their content of sesamine (protects the liver from oxidative damage) and sesamoline, which provides a very beneficial fiber called lignan, which has been shown to lower cholesterol.

B- Brazil nuts have an incredible selenium content that has been shown to increase resistance to cancer. In fact, even the selenium supplement has not been shown to be more potent than the nuts themselves. So, if you want the anti-cancer properties and a great source of selenium, add a small handful of nuts to your food list. Just make sure you choose nuts without the chocolate coating.

C- Coconuts and coconut oil have a hard time because they are not only a saturated fat, but one of the highest saturated fats in existence. So you probably think I am crazy to advise you to make them your new cooking oil. Let me explain, coconut oil is actually lower in calories than any other fat and can really boost your metabolism, help you lose weight, boost your immune system and give you immediate energy, it’s so simple! At just 6.8 calories per gram of fat (most fats contain 9 calories per gram of fat) this fat is high in MCFA (medium chain fatty acids) which are immediately broken down and used as fuel.

So here is a quick and easy way to remember a selection of foods that should be part of our daily diet. The best part is that 3 out of 4 can be used as snacks to take with you.
