Nuts Can Help Your Heart Healthy
According to the American Heart Association, substituting foods high in saturated fats with nuts helps reduce bad or LDL cholesterol.
Almonds, walnuts, pecans, and other tree nuts deliver a powerful punch for lowering your risk of cardiovascular and coronary heart disease.
These bite-sized nutritional powerhouses are packed with heart-healthy fats, protein, vitamins, and minerals.
They are also very filling and help curb our appetite. Of course we can get too much of a good thing… nuts are also high in calories, so a handful a day is plenty.
