The Most Nutritional Nuts?


Which ones have the most nutritional value ?? besides yours LOL


You mean calories per ounce?



This might be of help.

Fat and fiber composition of nuts



lol didn't even consider coconuts as a nut until today...


im currently grinding almonds for my protein shakes and was wondering if there is a better all around alternative, with protein,fats, and calories considered?


I think walnuts have the highest level of omega 3s




The Power Foods articles mention a couple nuts; walnuts and coconut specifically.



I personally get an ounce of walnuts per day, and a tablespoon of coconut oil.


All nuts are good for you.


Unless yer allergic. Then they kill you.

I have a mix of walnuts, almonds, and cranberries most days. Walnuts have are great for omega 3's, almonds have more protein and fiber though. Easy way to get an additional 500 cals or so.


And this needs to be pointed out?

Strawberries are lethal for some people too, but I don't see it needing to be mentioned in every fruit related thread.


I like almonds for the fiber. And I've actually become super-acclimated to the taste over the last year.

  1. Walnuts
  2. Almonds

i like cashews for flavor but the nutritional profile is pretty weak.
