I could see there are various nuts like coconut, cashewnuts, almonds, walnuts, peanuts, pistachio nuts, pine nuts so on.. Moreover it becomes more tasty when it is roasted, dried or may used in other foods like pistas, ice creams, shakes, rice etc. It also know for its medicinal values and also health benefits. Consumption of various nuts such as almonds and walnuts can lower serum LDL cholesterol concentrations.Dietitians frequently recommend nuts be included in diets prescribed for patients with insulin resistance problems. Nuts contain the all important fatty acids, linoleic and linolenic acids, which are critical for growth, physical and mental development, healthy hair and skin, blood pressure control, immunological responses and blood clotting. If I go on on nuts there is lot. The nut I like most is cashew nut both roasted and raw nuts.

I probably love almonds the most, especially roasted almonds. Cashews are really good too. You are right that nuts are very good for ones health. But they are high in natural fat. I know it is a good fat, but as Im trying to loose weight, I dont eat many nuts at all. I try to get my daughter to eat a lot of nuts, as she is a vegan,. Today I bought a packet of mixed nuts for my Father for Christmass. They are Charlesworth nuts, so they are expensive.

I like all those that you have mentioned ,cashew ,peanuts ,almonds ,coconut ,I never had walnuts before .I think though that if I could choose a favourite it would peanuts as that is the one that I consume on a regular basis and thats the one that is most readily available

I like most all types of nuts. I usually like to get a mixed package when I get them. It also depends on what I'm using them for. If I'm snacking, a mixed nut package works..if it's brownies, I like walnuts. I love chocolate covered almonds. I also like almonds just to eat.

I like cashews the best. I sometimes like the mixed nuts because they have so many different kinds and I can pick and choose which ones I want to eat. I used to eat honey roasted peanuts but I got sick of them since too many can make you wish you hadn't eaten too many. Cocktail peanuts are the best though, with a cold Coke there is nothing better.

Cashewnuts are mostly I use in these nuts varieties. It makes a great combination with other foods and soft drinks.

It's really hard to choose because I really go nuts over nuts (pun intended hehe) but my top picks would be almonds, cashews, pistachios and pili nuts.

Hello Shamrack. My favorite nuts are peanuts and pistachio, but as pistachio is more than triple the price of peanuts, I do not buy it often, only when it is some of traditional festivals. Peanuts are good for our health and my family use peanut oil to cook our food.
