I know nuts are good for you in general, but while it's good fat, they still have a lot of oil. Are there any particular nuts that are better than others for snacking?

Nuts are high in calories but very good for you. They add up SO fast and are easy to pop without thinking! I read somewhere to either count them out for use in a salad or dish, or to divide up into little baggies for a portable snack.

What Crimsons said. In addition, I'd suggest thinking less about which nuts to eat, since they all have similar nutritional profiles, and more about ways you can use them in your cooking where you are using modest amounts but still appreciating their presence. A sprinkle of pine nuts in a lettuce salad, a few cashews in a stir-fry, a few almonds mixed with raisins for a snack. I'm on a lower calorie diet than practically everyone due to being a short inactive featherweight, and I'm on a low-fat diet due to gallstones, so I don't use nuts very much at the moment. When I do, it's generally something along the lines of putting in 7 almonds (a third of an ounce) in when I'm sautéing a courgette to put on pasta for an evening meal. To my surprise, the almonds show up pretty well even in such small quantities. Most people can eat quite a lot more of them than me, though.

nuts are a superfood and are one of the healthiest foods you can eat. Especially healthy nuts are walnuts.
