Nowadays, there’s no shortage of hub-bub flying around about the next great superfood guaranteed to fill your body with powerful antioxidants and beneficial nutrients. All the while, throughout changing superfood fads, nuts continue to play an essential role in the journey to optimal nutrition.
Nuts like walnuts and almonds will always be a mainstay you can depend on for valuable nutrition. But some myths surround them that we can debunk with confidence.
A diet that contains a healthy dose of walnuts can do much to keep your body healthy. Here are just a few of the many benefits walnuts bring.
Almonds are an excellent source of healthy fats, vitamins, and minerals your body needs to run well, feel good, and look good, too!
Nuts will make you fat.
Unfortunately, nuts like walnuts and almonds may get a bad rap. The number one myth around these nutrient powerhouses is that they make you gain weight. This isn’t entirely correct. Walnuts and almonds are calorie-dense. Sure, you can’t go hog wild with them. But, by merely removing less healthy calorie sources such as chips, soda, or candy will give you needed room to accommodate almonds or walnuts into your diet.

For people who aren’t used to eating a diet rich in nuts, the idea can be a little uninspiring. But, try a few recipes that incorporate almonds or walnuts, and you’ll soon find those little things are surprisingly rich with flavor.
