How to Enjoy Nuts in Moderation

Nuts are often praised as a healthy snack containing “good” fats, protein and antioxidants. The only trouble with nuts is that they tend to be high in calories, and it’s easy to get carried away with the portion size consumed. My solution? Buy nuts still in their shell. The time it takes to crack the nuts and remove them from their shells will help slow you down and make you more aware of the number of nuts consumed. This way you can still get the health benefits of this nutritious snack without doing damage to your waist line. Curious just how many calories each type of nut contains? Here is a handy guide.
