Many nuts are good for you. Especially if they are unsalted. You can also buy many that are lightly salted. I have been trying to eat more lately. Have always enjoyed pecans and walnuts. My aunt had a pecan orchard. Always had them on the table for snacks and in the freezer to bake with. Lately I have been eating cashews, hazelnuts, almonds, and pistachios. I switch it up so I don't get tired of any. Pistachios are loaded with healthy benefits and they taste so good. The ones I bought recently are roasted and unsalted pistachios. So good. Do you have a favorite nut to snack on?

I got this from a friend before when she went to Korea and this has been my favorite mixed nut snacks. I love walnuts the most.

All that you mentioned except I've not eaten a lot of hazelnuts in recent years. I had to quit buying my nuts because I can't eat just ten or whatever the serving size might be.

Unsalted is the most healthy for sure.

@CarolDM I try to avoid too much salt, even if I like salted pistachios.

I love cashews, hazelnuts, almonds, pistachios, walnuts and peanuts.Unroasted peanuts are the most nuts that I eat. They are cheaper than the other nuts.

@CarolDM At first, when I first tried pistachios, I wasn't a fan, but I fell in love with them a little later. It was definitely not love at first bite

They have sort of a sweet taste. I really like them. And they are softer than others.

These are very healthy snacks. I usually eat walnuts because we have a few walnut trees so we have a lot of them, but I love everything else too. I haven't eaten pistachios in a long time.

I really like peanuts, but I like most nuts. I had some unprocessed almonds as part of my lunch today. In terms of pistachios they are OK, but it seems like whenever I buy a bag of them I never eat them all and end up throwing them out for the squirrels.

If I buy a big bag of pistachios, I will put them in ziplock bags. But there are plenty to choose from.

I love pistachios, hazelnuts, and almonds. But pistachios have a special place in my heart because my sister introduced me to them. When we would go downtown, Miami, there was a shop where we could buy 25 cents worth of pistachio nuts and have enough to share with each other. Can you imagine? What a wonderful memory.

I have a selection of unsalted nuts for snacks, but sometimes I do want the salt and have a few salted cashes handy, just in case. I don't think I have ever eaten pistachios

I like the salt at times as well, and sometimes I mix the two together. Pistachios are really good roasted.

You can also get lightly salted.
