Nuts, in particular almonds and walnuts, are also exceptionally nutrient-dense foods as they’re very high in monounsaturated fats.

Walnuts are also rich in the plant variety of Omega-3 fatty acids, a type of polyunsaturated fat associated with heart health.

Calcium, magnesium and potassium – also found in nuts – may reduce blood pressure and lower your risk of contracting heart disease.
