Nuts for nuts? Good for you, because nuts pack a strong nutritional punch. They get a bad rap for being high in fat, but they shouldn’t—the fats they contain are good-for-you unsaturated fats. Consuming them in moderation on a daily basis can help lower cholesterol, promote heart health and diminish inflammation in your body.
And don’t forget about seeds. They’re another natural source of protein and healthy fats, which can stand in as a healthy alternative for those who suffer from nut allergies.
