Nuts are Full of Healthy Fat
I love nuts and make sure they’re part of my diet because they’re full of healthy fat.
Nuts also fill me up with fiber and don’t leave me hungry.
Are Nuts Good for You?
As the Queen of Almond Flour, I’m often asked, are nuts good for you?
The answer is yes. And since they’re high in fat, nuts are not only good for you but perfect for the Keto Diet.
Nuts are full of healthy nutrients including DHA, an Omega-3 fatty acid that protects brain health, and much more.
Here is a list of nuts for you:
- Almonds -rich in vitamin E, magnesium, potassium
- Brazil Nuts -contain large amounts of selenium
- Cashews -higher in carbs, but very creamy
- Macadamia Nuts -very high in fat, low in carbs
- Peanuts -not a nut, but a legume
- Pecans -great source of calcium, magnesium, potassium
- Walnuts -rich in phosphorus and vitamin B6
The great thing about nuts from a macronutrient perspective is that they’re high in protein and fat.
Are Nuts Keto Diet Friendly?
This makes nuts a keto friendly food, especially because they’re low in carbohydrates.
Wondering about specific nuts’ carbs?
Macadamia nuts are high in fat and low in carbs, while cashews are not quite as keto friendly since they’re a bit lower in fat and higher in carbohydrates.
Should I Eat Nuts to Lose Weight?
Although nuts are high in fat and calories, they’re a fantastic part of a healthy diet.
Eating nuts regularly has not been associated with weight gain, due to the fact that nuts are so satiating.
Further, nuts promote a feeling of fullness that can lead to sustained weight loss.
How To Store Homemade Nuts
While there are rarely leftovers from my Keto Low-Carb Spiced Nuts Recipe, if you happen to have some that remain, store them in a mason jar.
Rather than toxic plastic containers for food storage, I keep my leftovers in glass.
For more, see my write up called 10 Reasons Glass is Better Than Plastic.
How Long Do Spiced Nuts Keep For?
Your Low-Carb Keto Spiced Nuts will last up to two weeks stored in the refrigerator.

The combination of sweet and salty is out of this world!
