Go Nuts Over Nuts!
Nuts are among the healthiest foods you can eat, as they are full of protein, vitamins, minerals and are a great source of heart-healthy fats.
Here’s a quick look at the different nutritional gains from the various types of nuts.
Don’t Be a Complete Nutter!
Though nuts are great sources of vitamins and minerals, consuming them in excess should be avoided. Stick to about 30 grams a day, as they tend to have an extremely high caloric content – not so good if you’re on a kilojoule-controlled diet. Any more than this and the healthy snack can become less than slimming. As they say, everything in moderation and in the case of nuts, you can have too much of a good thing!
