What's the Healthiest Nut to Eat?
WHAT’S THE HEALTHIEST NUT?
I recently got this question from a follower on social media: “I’m putting pecans in my oatmeal because I love them, but feeling like I should use walnuts. Is there a healthier or better nut to use?”
To be honest, I wasn’t sure what the “best” nut was – or if there were one markedly better than others. So being a nutrition nerd, I decided to run a nutrient report of different nuts to compare them side-by-side!
There’s no clear “winner” or best nut out there! They all have key characteristics that make them healthy protein and fat sources, but some are a little higher or lower in certain nutrients.
SO WHAT DOES THIS MEAN?
Don’t stress over your nut choice because you really can’t go wrong! See the comparison chart below for some of the most commonly consumed nuts.
