6 Ways Nuts Support Weight Management | L’Orenta Nuts & Goodies

Do you like nuts? Well, a couple of types at least. Have you ever thought of trying a few more? Oh yes, especially if they taste as good as your favorites.

What if I told you that nuts are good for managing weight? Oh, now I’ve got your attention! Well, there are a lot of ways that nuts support your weight control. One of the best things about this is that they taste so good and, at the same time, they’re good for you! 

That’s especially true when they’re from L’Orenta Gourmet Nuts & Goodies! Plus, our nuts come in those “goodies” options for special treats and an every-now-and-again reward. 

Are you ready? Time to take a look at all the nut goodness that awaits you!

1. Nuts Are Full of Good Fats!

Yes, you read that right. Chances are one reason you’ve been careful about how many you eat is that you’ve heard they’re full of fat. Let’s face it, there’s fat and then there’s fat. So, let’s get it right about the fats in nuts.

  • A lot of nuts contain Omega-3 fatty acids, just like those in some fish. These are good for your heart.
  • Nuts provide you with polyunsaturated fats that help with balancing cholesterol levels

2. Pump Up the Nut Protein

Are you someone who’s getting into yoga or weight-lifting as part of your wellness routine? Good for you for working on your strength and flexibility! Now it’s time to pair some protein-packed nuts with your workouts. 

  • A serving of our chandler walnuts boosts your protein intake by 4 grams 
  • Hazelnuts are good for 5 grams
  • It’s proteins that help you move, groove, and get the job done

3. Just a Few Nuts Do a Lot for You

One of the amazing ways that nuts support weight management is that a few can go a long way. 

  • Okay, a few may actually be 15-20 nuts, whatever makes up one ounce or ¼ cup. 
  • How come? 
  • That small amount lovingly adds fiber to your diet and that means healthy digestion
  • Healthy intestines support overall health, all the way up to your brain by limiting inflammation 

4. Mix It Up With Nuts

Many of us associate nuts with grabbing a handful during a snack attack. Nuts don’t mind, as they still satisfy our hunger and munch mania. Yet, there’s a good chance that we’re doing nuts and ourselves a disservice by not expanding on ways to mix things up with nuts. By that I mean, finding other ways to eat them. Here’s some to get you going: 

  • Mix macadamia nuts in yogurt to add a delicate flavor and satisfying bite
  • Natural pecan halves add an impressive 4 grams of protein per serving to your salad, or chopped to drop onto a cup of soup
  • Then again, add some nutty fiber to a pancake or two
  • Try doing the same with whole natural almonds that have a wolloping 7 grams of protein per serving!

5. Nuts By Their Numbers

Time to go over the protein, calories, and good stuff in a couple of our L’Orenta nut assortments. We’ve picked them out, just for you, to show you what’s in store for happy, healthy snacking! 

  • Happy Heart Raw Mix is a luscious combo of natural nuts that are rich in antioxidants and fiber. A 1.4 ounce serving contains 6 grams of protein and 250 calories. 
  • Keto Mix is a beautiful assortment, regardless of your nutritional choices. A 1.4 ounce serving gives you an amazing 7 grams of protein, an array of vitamins, and 250 calories. 

6. Ask Your Friends to Join in Some Nutty Fun!

There are times when it’s good to go-it-alone on a goal or project. Managing weight is not always one of them! Why not ask your friends to join in? After all, you can all gain a bunch of laughs while you lose. After all, being happy and having a good belly chuckle is one more way to manage weight!

  • You can host a ‘pick your nut party’ with friends bringing their faves along with a few nut facts and jokes.
  • Next, you pull up the L’Orenta Gourmet Nuts & Goodies site to pick the top nuts and/or nut mixes to order for your next ‘weight out’ party.
