Since each of the nuts has its own special attributes, as a dietitian I recommend choosing your favorites and eating a mixture. The latest diabetes study did show 2 ounces but it depends on your calorie level. The 2-ounce serving was for someone eating 2,000 calories a day.”

Almonds are one of the richest food sources of alpha-tocopherol, the form of vitamin E that is most easily absorbed by the body. Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant that supports the immune system, helps our bodies create red blood cells, and protects cells against the damaging effects of free radicals. Organic raw almonds really pack a protein punch. Our bodies use protein to build and repair tissue.
Cashews are high in protein and low in carbohydrates. Cashew nuts, like all nuts, are an excellent source of protein and fiber. They are rich in mono-unsaturated fat which may help protect the heart. Cashews are also an excellent source of copper, and a good source of phosphorus, magnesium, manganese, and zinc.

Organic pecans are also high in nutrients such as zinc, vitamin E, and vitamin A to boost the immune system and ward off illness.

In addition, pistachios are relatively high in a nonessential amino acid, arginine, which may play a potential role in prevention or reduction of cardiovascular disease.
