Just plain NUTS!

I’m curious about what people here think are the best nuts to eat as a healthy snack?

There are no best nuts as such. When eating nuts, you want to keep track of the amount of fats you are ingesting (that is, if you are tracking fats). Another thing you want to consider is the ratio of omega 3s to omega 6s. Ideally, I would choose nuts that have preferable ratio of n3:n6 and have a decent amount of mono-saturated fats as well. Almonds are my usual choice.

I would say walnuts as they have more favorable 3s:6s omega ratio.
