In case one is hungry one can have a healthy snack consisting of nuts and seeds. It is indeed good to have a handful of raw nuts or seeds which is a good food choice. They are easy to carry while traveling as one can keep them in a small bag in one’s purse or desk drawer at work One keep as well as at home in one’s fridge (nuts and seeds go rancid easily, so storing them in the refrigerator or freezer helps).
One can indeed feast on whichever nuts and seeds that do appeal to one most, although some are arguably healthier than others. One need not go in for peanuts as they are not nuts.
The nuts that follow are tree nuts, i.e. they grow on trees. Peanuts actually grow underground and, despite their name, are actually legumes – and not one I recommend eating.
Fortunately, there are plenty of healthy nuts and seeds to choose from, so even without peanuts, one can have the healthy meal.
