Eating nuts as part of a healthy diet can be good for your heart. Nuts, which contain unsaturated fatty acids and other nutrients, are a great snack food, too. They`re inexpensive, easy to store and easy to take with you to work or school.
The type of nut you eat isn`t that important, although some nuts have more heart-healthy nutrients and fats than do others. Walnuts, almonds, hazelnuts you name it almost every type of nut has a lot of nutrition packed into a tiny package. If you have heart disease, eating nuts instead of a less healthy snack can help you more easily follow a heart-healthy diet.
