Although there isn’t a massive difference between the calories and the fat content with these two options, it’s the salt you need to watch out for. Salted nuts have around 15% of your recommended daily salt intake in just a small handful so it can easily creep up in just one night. Salt leads to high blood pressure, obesity, and kidney disease – so stay clear. The high salt content also makes you drink more through dehydration which can lead to more calories.
Almonds are the super-nut for your hair and your skin. Packed full of vitamin E, calcium, iron and zinc they are the most nutritious nut you can eat. The good fats in almonds are easily broken down by the body and the zinc and vitamin E help to replenish your body to reduce your hangover. Bonus!
