While the peanut may be a legume and not a true nut, it's still a valuable part of any diet. Whether you prefer low-carb, low-fat, or raw food only, salted nuts can play an important role in keeping you healthy and helping you reach your fitness or weight loss goals. These little packages of healthy fats and powerful proteins may look humble, but they're a tasty way to stay well-nourished while enjoying the satisfaction of fulfilling your urge to snack.
Peanuts do contain plenty of fat, but it comes in form of heart-healthy monounsaturated fat. Combine this with the antioxidants packed into the legumes and you've got a double dose of heart support. Niacin, vitamin E, and folate all promote muscle recovery and healthy muscle function at the same time, aiding both athletes and sedentary snackers. In fact, eating peanuts may even lower your risk of developing gallbladder stones. Aside from these specific functions, they also supply about a quarter of your daily protein requirement and only 3% of your daily carbohydrate requirement while packing in 3 grams of fiber per quarter cup. You can't find nutrition like that in just any snack, and salted peanuts still offer the same savory flavors as a less healthy alternative.
