Nuts are some of the best things you can eat - they're loaded with antioxidants, good fats, and protein. I never really liked nuts growing up but have learned to love them as I got older. Here are my favorites and why!
Almonds have gotten really popular as a snack in recent years(probably because of the crafty work of the California Almond Board). And why not? They're filled with protein and just a handful will tide you over as an afternoon snack until dinnertime. They're also great sliced in cereals.
I haven't chestnuts in forever, but I do love them. They're really, really oily if you get them roasted the right way - and that's the best way! ;) When you eat them you can tell how good they are for you.
I think it's safe to say that these are the most common and generic of all nuts, but that doesn't mean they aren't great. I like them the best in other foods, like trail mix, Clif bars, and OF COURSE, peanut butter! I can't believe I never liked peanut butter as a kid...weird, huh?
