About Our Nuts
As you can imagine, the Nuts.com family loves all varieties of nuts and values the distinct tastes, flavors, textures, and aromas of each type of nut. Everyone has their favorite nuts.
Remarkably, nuts not only taste great, but are often healthy snacks for you as well. It seems like every day more and more studies continue to be released extolling the health benefits of eating nuts as a fundamental part of your diet. The FDA has backed this up, claiming that eating additional servings of certain nuts may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease. Wow! This is great. And you thought for something to taste good, it had to be unhealthy.
Take almonds for example. Pound for pound almonds are the most nutrient dense of all tree nuts. A handful of almonds a day just might keep the doctor away. Or try almond paste as a healthy frosting on your baked goodies.
Brazil nuts are unique with their high selenium content, whose antioxidant properties protect against heart disease, cancer, and aging. If you've never tried these, it's not too late, as we sell brazil nuts in the shell and raw or roasted out of the shell. I love munching on pistachios, and amazingly, pistachio nuts are packed with fiber.
My favorite way of eating pecans is in pecan pie. Maybe the pie isn't all that healthy, but pecans sure are, and can even help lower your cholesterol. And don't forget chocolate pecans for an instant dessert and a healthy dose of antioxidants from their sweet coating! Don't have a sweet tooth? Throw in an ounce of pine nuts into your salad or pesto, and enjoy a crunchy 9% of your daily fiber intake!
Walnuts have some special properties as well, with a high concentration of omega-3 fatty acids. Treat your taste buds to intensely-flavored black walnuts or sweet candied walnuts.
We always catch my dad snacking on cashews. Fortunately, the good news here is that cashews are loaded with fiber and protein. Finally, peanuts are not just meant for the ball games. Peanuts are a good source of vitamin E and B and can be enjoyed all the time.
