In the past decade, almond milk, cashew milk, and nut butter—peanut butter's cousin—have become hit products.
Most nuts include healthy fat, fiber, and protein, but look for these two nutrient-dense favorites:
Walnuts are a great source of Omega threes and boost HDL," explains registered dietitian nutritionist Danielle Crumble Smith.
Almonds are rich in fiber, protein, and vitamin E, which protects cells from free radical damage.
Peanuts, like peas, edamame, and lentils, are legumes, yet culture considers them nuts due to their taste and name.
Brazil nuts boost HDL and provide magnesium, copper, zinc, protein, and fatty acids.
