I am a total nut freak! Raw, roasted or in butter form, I probably consume anywhere between 1-3 servings daily!
A lot of people watching their weight try to avoid nuts and nut butters because of the higher fat content but don’t be fooled!! Adding nuts to your daily diet can help contribute to weight loss!!
The unsaturated and polyunsaturated fats in nuts are hugely beneficial to your body’s many functions – including but not limited to your metabolism (ya know, that function that helps your body break down food and burn fat). Yes, you need fat to loose fat, haha! Plus, nuts are a great source of protein!
The only two things you really need to watch out for are portion control and raw vs. roasted nuts. I recommend always buying raw nuts and dry roasting them yourself with a little salt. Buying roasted nuts can majorly spike the calorie content as most manufacturers use gobs of honey or oil. Commonly, nuts are 1/4cup or 2tablespoons a serving, so make sure to measure and don’t forget…
