4 Nuts You Gotta Have

Sarah Food for Runners 0 Comments

So today I’ve switched things up a bit! Here it is, my debut Eat 2 Run Info Bites via video.

Now I know you like to snack and I know you need quick and easy snack options. In fact, in my post a couple weeks ago I mentioned that nuts make a good snack. Today I want to share which ones are the best ones to reach for and why… And give you an idea how much you want to be eating at one time. Because, no, you’re not supposed to eat the whole bag at once 😉

In the comments below the video, let me know what nuts you like to snack on – and why! Do you choose them for their nutritional profile or is it because of taste? Do you like them raw, or roasted/salted, or spiced? Do you find you eat too many at once?!!

Happy running 🙂

  1. Love the video Sarah! I love making the trail-mix you recommended, that includes cashews, almonds, walnuts, pecan, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds and some goji berries. I roast them in the oven with a bit of coconut oil and a dash of salt, as per your instructions. Yum!

  2. Cute video!! I’m all about walnuts, almonds and pecans (yum yum)…and very sad that when I eat cashews I feel like I’m about to die lol…Nut fair! Didn’t know about your newsletter – I shall sign up :).

      Thanks Jill! Haha, ‘nut’ fair!! No, it’s not really fair, but rest assured you’re not the only one – I’ve had clients who can’t eat almonds, or peanuts, or of course cashews. Hmmm, I don’t think I’ve ever come across someone who can’t eat walnuts (other than those who are allergic to nuts altogether)!!

      Yep, newsletter goes out every Thursday – thanks for signing up 🙂

  3. Thanks Sarah. I love almonds but thought pecans and cashews were too heavy on the calories. I will mix them up immediately. Great video! Note that I have changed my email to received these messages.Pat C

      Awesome, glad you liked it! It’s a common misconception, but as cashews have 155 calories per ounce and almonds 160, technically I guess you could say they’re actually a bit lighter! And the fat that is found in each of these nuts is predominately monounsaturated fat – the same kind of fat found in olive oil, the kind that is heart-healthy 🙂
