Nuts are full of fat â€“ but itâ€™s the good fats. Monounsaturated fats and Omega 3s. The kind that help lower your cholesterol.
They are also a good source of protein, fiber, photonutrients, and antioxidants selenium and vitamin E.
Some of the more powerful nuts include almonds, peanuts, pecans and walnuts.
And theyâ€™re dense, they take longer to digest â€“ so youâ€™ll feel fuller longer. Treat yourself to a handful a day. They are high in calories, so donâ€™t overdo it if youâ€™re trying to lose weight.
They’re great thrown in a salad or oatmeal. Throw some almond pieces in your fresh green beans. Even my Dad will eat that.
