I'll jump on this bandwagon. I already keep a large bag of raw almonds in my workdesk and by my bed. I shall add walnuts to that - even though i find them too drying to eat a lot of, a handful a day is doable. And hazelnuts too, just because they are my favourite nut.

I eat a small handful of almonds, walnuts, cashews (can't get Brazil nuts here) every day, primarily for heart health but also it's a healthier and more filling snack than most alternatives.

You sound like a really fun person to be around

No one's mentioning peanuts. They're like one third the price of almonds or cashews and I like 'em.

Okay, just a disclaimer. I had a full container of honey roasted peanuts someone bought me. I started my Friday night beer and movie ritual and lo and behold I got beer munchies and after 1 hour I had eaten 3,000 calories of all of the peanuts. Beer and peanuts should not mix if weight loss is your goal. Now I try to munch on a carrot to fill me up.

@Rarereason:

Are you judging me based on my dietary preferences, or on my turn of phrase?

If so, I'm fine with not being friends with you. Cheers and be on your way :)

That's because they are not nuts. Nobody mentioned elephants either.
