If you are like me you probably have your favorite nuts and seeds to snack on. My favorites have been almonds and pistachios for as long as I can member. I’ve never been a great fan of walnuts, although I have come to learn that they are one of the healthier nuts to eat. So, I might have to acquire a taste for them.
The other great thing about nuts is if you ever find yourself hungry and need a quick and healthy snack, nuts or seeds are a great choice. They’re easy to travel with because you can easily throw them in your purse, briefcase, backpack or hand carry luggage. They keep well in your fridge and you will want to keep them there vs. on a shelf or snack table because they do go bad easily. And just a side note, peanuts are not nuts they are actually a legume – something else I recently learned after doing some reading.
So, which nuts and seeds should you focus on eating? Well here are a few links to some information and I am sure you will come up with your perfect list of healthy favorites.
