Almond: Eat about 8 – 10 Almonds a day, Almonds use to come in different varieties, but they are always crunchy and satisfying. The varieties are classified by their colour, size and shape. They help in lowering your bad cholesterol and are packed with vitamin E, magnesium and potassium. Almonds are bone-building superfood as it is rich in calcium and packed with phosphorus which will lower risk of fractures. Almonds are better when they are without their peels because peel of Almond contains tannin, which inhibits nutrient absorption. Soaking the almonds makes it easier to take off the peel. Soaked Almonds are also much easier to digest.
Cashew: Have 3-5 cashews a day for proper weight management and reduction of bad cholesterol from your body. Gives a lot of energy and keep you satisfied for a long time. With the goodness of copper and antioxidants, it helps in making your skin look radiant.

Raisin: ½ cup of raisins contains about 217 calories and 47 grams of sugar. These nature’s candy are low sugar treats for weight watchers. Rich source of Iron, calcium and boron making it perfect snack.
Walnut: Eating walnuts can help lower bad cholesterol and help keep your artery walls healthy. Eases the type of inflammation, that leads to heart disease and lower the risk of heart diseases. Walnuts may sound like superfood, with their valuable nutrients, but they have several limitations:
