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.

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.
