Who says you can only get protein from meat? One major benefit of pistachios is that they are high in protein but low in calories. Additionally, they are full of potassium, fiber, and monounsaturated fats. With all the goodness packed into this little nut, pistachios have proven to help lose fat and lower cholesterol. Pro Tip: shelled pistachios will take you longer to eat, allowing time for your stomach to tell your brain you are full.

All the talk surrounding almonds and their benefits is true. Almonds are packed with monounsaturated fats – so, along with keeping you full, they help to lower your risk of heart disease. Additionally, almonds are packed with vitamin E, protein, and amino acids, making them one of the best pre-workout snacks.

Who doesn’t love some good cashews? Don’t let the buttery flavor fool you. These little guys are packed with zinc, magnesium, and tons of iron. Cashews are a staple when it comes to promoting healthy cells.

Peanuts get a bad rap because they are constantly being processed with unhealthy foods, like ice cream or sugar-filled peanut butter. However, when you take peanuts down to their most organic form, they are packed with healthy goodness like calcium, fiber, protein and much more.

Last but not least, the good ol’ walnut. Walnuts are packed with omega-3s and other fatty acids, making them the perfect nut for anyone who has removed fish from their diet. Additionally, they are full of antioxidants and phytonutrients that help to reduce inflammation.
