Nuts and seeds have consistently been one of the most underrated heroes in the world of healthy eating. The vast amount of types of nuts have generated debate among every level of consumer, business, and scientist capable of contributing an opinion on nature’s best snack.
The fact remains that the advantages of peanuts, benefits of tree nuts, and overarching bodily charms of nuts are substantial, making them one of the healthiest snacks you can possibly ask for. We’re going to check out a few nuts that will boost your day-to-day snack health and keep away pesky cravings for empty filler foods.
Among numerous pecan benefits are their meal replacement abilities. Along with Macadamia nuts, pecans have a high-calorie count. This has caused some people to avoid them for fear of calorie counting in a diet, but they’re still incredibly good for you. Of course, eating several handfuls won’t work wonders, but for a small afternoon snack, you’ll find yourself well tided over until your next meal along with a healthy amount of natural fats and nutrients.
While pecan benefits tip more toward the filling side of things, almonds, cashews, and pistachios are great nuts for dieting. They’re low in calories and wonderful for day-long grazing. High in protein and fiber, they’ll help keep your appetite in check without loading you up with too many calories if you’re keeping count in that department.
Everything in its place
Research has shown that consuming nuts on a daily basis (two servings) is beneficial to heart health, fights diabetes, and battles cancer. Of course, as with anything, balance is key. There are so many nut products out there that ride the coattails of the health benefits of nuts to sell sham health foods. Don’t fall for packaging and preparation like that. The best way they can benefit your health is by balanced, consistent consumption of raw or dry roasted nuts.
There are so many types of nuts in existence that documenting and sharing their benefits is an ongoing task. One that we’re dedicated to sharing with the world. When hunger pangs strike and minds wander toward the millions of markets targeted toward empty calories and junk food, think again. Go nuts, you can do it. After all, it’s called a peCAN, not a peCAN’T.by
