I've been trying to eat nuts lately and I really like cashews. Does it matter which nuts you eat or are they all good? Anyone have any favorites or ones to stay away from?

Best to eat them raw vs roasted. They digest more completely, and the healthy oils aren't denatured, or oxidized as a result of the processing.

Macadaimian nuts are amazing. Especially in cookies with white chocolate chips. :)

I have read numerous places that macademia and cashews are highest in saturated fat and lowest in EFA's.

so I stick to peanuts and almonds.

Almonds are my favourite, but I usually eat peanuts because they are a lot cheaper.

Todays fun fact: almonds are nuts! People with nut allergies often are not allergic to almonds. Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Almond



DISCLAIMER: If you are allergic to nuts, please don't eat almonds because I said so....I don't want to accidently kill you.

I heard peanuts and almonds are the way to go. Although getting the extra salty peanuts might not be a better choice over plain peanuts. Just go to the store and check the Nutrition faqs and pick the healthiest brand :D
