Nuts about Nuts? Your Heart Says Thanks. Oh Boy! I LOVE nuts! So, this article says they are good for you…lowers your bad cholesterol and total cholesterol and sometimes raises your good cholesterol. Also, the outside coating of the nuts is good for your heart! They are also a good source of fiber and protein! A win win situation! The most heart-healthy nuts are almonds, walnuts and pistachios. Also…better for you than snacking on potato chips! The only problem is…only a handful…not the whole can! LOL Nuts could become a binge food for me also, even if they are more healthy! Too many calories are still too many calories! Awww NUTS!

    I love nuts too!

    I sprinkle them in salads ~ love the taste and crunch and much more protein and heart healthy goodness than adding croutons.

    Thanks, Estherlou!

    Good idea! Eating something crunchy has always been important to me. If a food is too soft, it doesn’t satisfy that need and I want to keep eating.
