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.
