Nuts are an ideal nutritious snack.
They're linked to a reduced risk of heart disease and may help prevent certain cancers, depression, and other illnesses (1, 2).
Despite being relatively high in fat, they are very filling. Several studies suggest that eating nuts in moderation can help you lose weight (3, 4, 5).
Nuts provide the perfect balance of healthy fat, protein, and fiber. They contain 180 calories in a 1-ounce (28-gram) serving, on average.
Because they don't require refrigeration, they’re perfect for taking on the go.
