Healthy

Nuts are rich in essential nutrients for our bodies, such as protein, fiber, iron, and unsaturated fat. Nuts promote good digestion, provide a feeling of fullness, and lower ‘bad’ LDL cholesterol.

How much do you need?

Consume a small handful of nuts or peanuts every day (15 grams for women, 15-25 grams for men).

Tip

Nuts and peanuts are healthy. Nuts make for an excellent meat substitute or snack. However, they are calorie-dense, so it’s best to have just one small handful of nuts per day.
