Nuts are full of fat – but it’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 they’re dense, they take longer to digest – so you’ll feel fuller longer. Treat yourself to a handful a day. They are high in calories, so don’t overdo it if you’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.
