Vegan Nuts

Despite all of the nutritional benefits offered by these nuts, consumption and portion control is important to maintaining the healthy benefit of consuming nuts. A handful here and there is ideal. One of the biggest mistakes nut eaters make is snacking on large amounts. Be mindful of the portions and you’ll be sitting pretty on the healthy side of nuts.
