All About Nuts!

Mixed Nuts

As we all know, nuts can be a great snack on the go or at work, but how many and what type of nuts are enough or too much?

Roasted, no salt per 1oz:

  1. Almonds – 23 nuts, 14g fat, 6g protein, 163 calories
  2. Brazil Nuts – 7 nuts, 21g fat, 4g protein, 205 calories
  3. Cashews – 18 nuts, 13g fat, 4.5g protein, 163 calories
  4. Hazelnuts – 20 nuts, 17g fat, 4g protein, 178 calories
  5. Peanuts – 28 nuts, 14g fat, 6.5g protein, 166 calories
  6. Pistachios – 49 nuts, 13g fat, 6g protein, 161 calories
  7. Walnuts – 14 halves, 17g fat, 7g protein, 173 calories

From the above we can see that the best choice with regards to quantity: calorie ratio is pistachios. You can eat more of them for fewer calories. Obviously each of the nuts have different health benefits but if you are trying to lose weight and are eating nuts as a snack; this is a good guide to keep hunger at bay without feeling deprived. This is often where people go wrong as they don’t know how many nuts are too many. Sooo, go nuts 😛
