Nuts and Seeds : Carb Count !

Do you like nuts and seeds? Do you have a favourite nut? I do like to occasionally snack on nuts! I also like a low carb cookie/biscuit with hazelnuts or chopped pecans or walnuts as an enjoyable treat with a cuppa.

Snacking on nuts can be so much better than snacking on high-carb junk food, and ground nuts such as almond flour are brilliant for low-carb baking! But make no mistake, the volume you may be consuming and the high carb contents of some nuts, can be the number one saboteur of weight loss.

So let's take a closer look at the most common nuts and seeds with their carb values.

Coconut flour is a good source of iron, manganese, copper, and several other minerals.

I do like seeds and nuts but try to limit the volume I gobble. Which is easier said than done some days.

That's very useful, I snack on nuts once a day but looking at that I'm eating more than I should.

I'm surprised some of these have so much net carb in them. This was interesting.

happyone said...

What a great chart. Was surprised how many carbs are in some of them. My favorite is pecans.

DVArtist said...

Great post. I do use almond flour, and we eat almonds every day.

Sandra Cox said...

I eat nuts daily, so this was helpful.
Stay safe. Be well.

That's a great chart, I eat too many cashews.

Jan, great information. I think nuts are my favorite snacks. I eat nuts and/or peanut butter twice a day usually. And the three nuts you mentioned liking in cookies/biscuits are the same ones I like in mine as well!

William Kendall said...

I like nuts, with the exception of pecans.

Victor S E Moubarak said...

Why is it all the things I like have a lot of carbs? Can't you do something about it? We use ALL the seeds and nuts in your article - regularly.

God bless.

I like pecans, black walnuts, almonds, and pistachios.

Now I'm wondering which is the healthiest milk. Will have to Google that

Kay said...

I eat a lot of mixed nuts for snacks to prevent me from eating what I shouldn't.

Conniecrafter said...

Figures that cashews are my favorite of them all. I have been trying to have more walnuts lately for a change, i guess that is better for me

Iris Flavia said...

Interesting info, thank you!

Jenn Jilks said...

I love nuts. We've been buying dry roasted nuts for the girls offices to nibble. I love toasting them for casserole toppers!

Lovely Jan.

Divers and Sundry said...

I include nuts but measure them. It amazes me how much the carb count differs between them!

I do like nuts, but didn't realise cashews were so high in carbs xx
