Cashews: Trying to slim down? You don’t have to give up your favorite cashews. Eating 1-2 ounces daily shouldn’t add to your waistline. Data from Harvard University’s landmark Nurses’ Health study showed that participants who regularly ate nuts were thinner on average than folks who never ate nuts. The rich taste of nuts may keep hunger at bay longer and may help cut cravings. Cashews are cholesterol-free and high in protein. A great source of iron, magnesium, zinc, phosphorus, and selenium, cashews have a lower fat content compared to other tree nuts.
Almonds: The perfect nut; one serving of almonds (approx. 28g or 1oz) has 13g of unsaturated fat and only 1g of saturated fat. They are high in potassium, calcium and iron. Almonds are a nutritionally dense food, meaning they pack a lot of fiber in a small package. In a 2009 Purdue University study found that the bioaccessibility of vitamin E and the good-for-you fats found in almonds increased significantly when participants chewed the nuts thoroughly, about 40 times per mouthful. Not only were more of the nutrients released and absorbed by the body, but the participants felt fuller faster and longer.
Hazelnuts: Hazelnuts (a.k.a. Filberts) may be a true “super food.” Decide for yourself: they have one of the highest known content of proanthocyanidin (PAC). PAC is a micronutrient with antioxidant capabilities 20 times more powerful than vitamin C, and over 50 times more potent than vitamin E. Hazelnut’s antioxidants bolster the body’s defense against free radicals, including those linked to several types of cancer and other serious diseases. Like all nuts, the nutrients in hazelnuts offer cardioprotective benefits, and make a wonderful addition to a heart smart diet when their monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats are substituted for less-healthy saturated fats.
Pecans: Sixty-five percent of the oil in pecans is heart-smart monounsaturated oleic fatty acid. Texas A&M University researchers found that a diet high in this fat may be as effective as a low fat diet that’s high in carbohydrates. Pecans get their cholesterol-lowering super powers not only from fat, but from the presence of beta-sitosterol, a natural cholesterol-lowering compound. Vegetarians take note: pecans are high in protein, and one serving (about 1-2 oz) can take the place of an ounce of meat. Like hazelnuts, pecans have one of the highest levels of antioxidants.
Brazil Nuts: High in selenium, the content of Brazil nuts, unlike most plant-based food, is considered to be a complete protein. This means Brazil nuts, much like meat-based protein sources, have all of the necessary amino acids for optimal human growth. Selenium is a powerful antioxidant, and Brazil nuts have about 2,500 times as much selenium as other nuts. Increased intake of selenium has been tied to lower rates of cancer (particularly prostate cancer) and heart disease. The benefits don’t stop there. Brazil nuts are also high in zinc, a mineral that’s essential for proper digestion and metabolism.
