Nutrition Nibbles

The nuts are optional, but do add an addition nutritional kick. Walnuts are the only nut that contain a significant amount of omega-3 fatty acids, and majority of fat in walnuts is the "healthy" polyunsaturated fat. Walnuts contain no cholesterol, no sodium and no trans fat.

Two studies on pecans show that blood cholesterol levels are dramatically lowered when pecans are incorporated into the diet. Researchers say that it is the unsaturated fats in pecans that help lower cholesterol levels. Pecans also contain plant components with antioxidant properties.
