  • Cashews are my favorite!

    Thanks for sharing
  • Love most all nuts. Cashews especially with the whole large size.
  • I love nuts. I sprinkle sliced almonds on my salads. And I keep the single serving packs for a real treat. This way I know exactly what I'm eating.
  • Coconuts are not nuts, botanically, they're a stone fruit. My son has a nut allergy and can has had coconut and is fine. Coconut is very healthy. The oil has a high smoke point, so it doesn't degrade when cooking. Coconut also has medium-chain fatty acids which are excellent for your health in so many ways. Just wanted to clarify that coconuts are NOT nuts, FDA or no. Nutmeg has "nut" in the name, but isn't a nut either. So not a nut, but excellent for your health, as long as what you're getting is good quality and doesn't have fillers or lots of extras that you can't identify.
  • I love all kinds of nuts. I buy the cans of mixed nuts and use my 1/4 cup measuring cup and pour it into a small bowl (and it makes it look like more) and sit down and enjoy them one at a time! Yummy!!!
  • I know that nuts are healthy. BUT ... they are definitely a binge food for me. I have to buy small quantities when I'm out. I can't buy a can or large bag --- because I have a problem limiting myself.
  • A whole article about nuts, and then they use peanuts (which are of course beans, not nuts) as an example. SMH.
  • I love them, but I do measure every time I eat them because it is easy to eat way more than a serving.
  • Only having a measured amount of nuts per day stops the binging, and for me, I totally avoid salted, roasted nuts. I could easily wolf down a whole can. I stick to raw, unsalted nuts, and still measure my allotment , but I never gorge on raw nuts. Most roasted nuts are coated in some other kind of oil first before roasting, so beware of those kinds. Raw is healthiest.
  • I love the 'mint tin' idea! I'm going to put some in my purse right now!

    I try to stick to walnuts though, just because those cashews and peanuts are way too delicious!

    Nuts, oh nuts. I have been eating these little power houses for years. Throughout the day, I grab a few different ones. Walnuts, Cashews, Almonds, and Pistachios are all my favorite. I also combine them with jumbo black raisons for added benefit. Most breakbast days consist of a bowl of oatmeal on top of walnuts, and cinnamon. I don't eat meat, so these little creatures really satisfy me. Oh! not to forget, before I go to bed or while reading in bed, I grab a few Walnuts. There I've given my body protein to munch off of throughout the night. That way it leaves my hard earne muscles alone.
  • Love pecans or walnuts on my oatmeal. They are so good on some salads with craisins added, too. Especially the salads with strawberries, raspberries and blueberries/
  • I eat mixed nuts daily and love them! I make my own trail mix so I can control the portions and I can cut out peanuts (which I hate!) and add whatever else works. Weigh your nut portions b/c everyone's idea of a handful is different. :)
