The Ranking of Nuts by Preference

Here are the nuts I prefer, based on eating them whole or in other foods. (Nut butters are a whole other thing.) I’ve included seeds and legumes as well.
Robitaille's Dark Chocolate Turtle
1. Pecans
2. Cashews
3. Hazelnuts
4. Almonds
5. Pistachio
6. Pine Nuts
7. Peanuts
8. Pepitas or Pumpkin Seeds
8. Sesame Seeds
8. Macadamia Nuts
9. Brazil Nuts

(I’m allergic to Walnuts.)

  1. Not a bad list. I’d lower the pecans and hazlenuts quite a bit and eliminate pumpkin seeds, but that’s just me.

  2. A lot of great vitamins and antioxidants from top to bottom. It’s a shame that you’re allergic to the most heart-healthy of all. A steady diet of the nuts you list certainly balances the occasional sweet indulgence. At least that’s what I tell myself. -Joe

During November it's all about me writing a novel. Sometimes it's about whalewatching. You know, and then there's other stuff.
