WHY THIS MIX:
Almond

Almonds are not “true nuts. “They’re actually the seeds of a drupe. What we eat from the almond fruit is really the plant’s seeds. Almonds are native to the Mediterranean region, have a mild taste, and are perfect addition to the keto diet.

Nutrition & Health Benefits
A 100 gram amount of almonds provides over 20% of the daily value (DV) of B vitamins, vitamin E, calcium, magnesium, iron, and zinc. They also provide up to 20% of the DV of folate, choline, and potassium. They’re particularly rich in fiber as well as unsaturated fatty acids, both of which lower bad (LDL) cholesterol.

Almonds contain phytosterols one of which is beta-sitosterol. Phytosterols are types of plant cholesterol that have cholesterol-lowering properties. Almonds are also high in the antioxidant vitamin E, which is especially important for skin health.

How to Eat
You can eat almonds raw, roasted, or blanched. Most of the antioxidants in almonds are in the skin, so we don’t recommend removing it. Keto dieters also love to use almond products like almond flour, milk, and butter as keto-approved food alternatives.

Walnut

Walnuts are definitely underrated keto nuts. They’re great for boosting brain functioning and they also protect your heart. Walnuts are cheaper than some other nuts and even lower in calories according to newer studies. This allows you to enjoy them as much as you like while following the keto diet.

Nutrition & Health Benefits
Walnuts are 65% fat, most of which is the polyunsaturated kind. In fact, walnuts contain more polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) than other nuts, particularly the brain-boosting omega-3 fatty acids that studies show we should eat more [7]. Unfortunately, omega-3s easily become rancid quickly. To prevent rancidity, keep walnuts in a cool, dry place or in the fridge.

Other than PUFAs, walnuts are a good source of fiber, protein, thiamin, folate, magnesium, and copper. Studies on walnuts show that walnuts provide 20% less energy than traditionally calculated based on their fat content [8]. That definitely explains why people who eat plenty of nuts don’t gain excess weight.

How to Eat
Walnuts are delicious all on their own. But they go best when added to keto dishes. You can sprinkle crushed walnuts for salads or bake with them. Walnuts have a slightly bitter taste making them most suitable for savory dishes but they go well with muffins and pancakes too.

Brazil nut

Brazil nuts are large nuts with one nut weighing around 5 grams. As the name suggests, Brazil nuts are native to Brazil. However, the largest producer of these keto nuts is Bolivia. These nuts grow on large trees, some towering over 160 feet.

Nutrition & Health Benefits
Brazil nuts are famous for their impressive selenium content. One nut will give you 140% of the DV of this essential mineral. Selenium is actually quite difficult to obtain from food, and these nuts help meet your daily needs. It is essential for thyroid hormone production and it also provides antioxidant and anti-inflammatory protection [10].

However, you have to be careful how much of these keto nuts you eat. Too much can lead to selenium toxicity which causes nausea, vomiting, and brittle hair and nails. Besides selenium, Brazil nuts can help you reach your macros because they’re almost 70% fat. They contain the perfect balance of both PUFA and MUFA fats. Studies on these keto nuts show that they’re especially notable as antioxidant foods, protecting against cancer [11].

How to Eat
To avoid selenium toxicity, eat a maximum of 2 brazil nuts a day. You can chop them and add them to keto brownies, muffins, and even savory dishes. They have an incredible creamy taste that goes well with any dish and makes it hard to stick to the recommended daily levels.

ABOUT:

Keto nuts and seeds are those nuts and seeds that contain more fats than carbs per gram of fruit. Many keto dieters consider keto nuts and seeds a dietary staple. They’re convenient, rich in healthy fats, low in carbs, and abundant in health-protecting antioxidants – all things that can benefit your keto journey.

It’s true that most plant foods are too high in carbs to be suitable for keto. Grains, fruits, legumes, and starchy vegetables are just some food staples that you can’t eat on a keto diet due to their carb content. If you eat these foods, chances are your blood sugar will spike and you won’t get anywhere near ketosis.

Keto nuts and seeds, on the other hand, are rich in fat and low in carbs, having a minimal impact on blood glucose. In fact, research shows that eating these foods has an anti-diabetic effect. This effect does not come solely from the high fat content of nuts and seeds. Fiber also helps as it feeds good gut bacteria which then supports normal metabolism functioning. Their high antioxidant content also helps lower inflammation in the body and inflammation is a key driver of diabetes.
