Many of us have been told to steer clear of nuts: They’re high in calories and full of fat.

Ah, but it’s good, heart-healthy fat.

The American Heart Association recommends eating four 1.5-ounce (about a handful) servings of unsalted, unoiled nuts per week.

However, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration says that eating 1.5 ounces of nuts per day may reduce the risk of heart disease.

Walnuts are the healthiest nuts of all. See why.

And start to enjoy your 1.5 ounces per day of the “Magnificent Seven” of nuts:

  • Almonds
  • Hazelnuts
  • Peanuts
  • Pecans
  • Pine Nuts
  • Pistachios
  • Walnuts
  •
