Nut Lovers Rejoice

Pecans, almonds, walnuts, peanuts, hazelnuts, pine nuts, macadamia nuts. Did I miss any??

Nuts are some of the best foods to eat to promote good heart health and longevity. They are filled with healthy fats, fiber, AND protein.

If you can think of a nut, odds are it’s good for you and will help fuel your body. Nutella technically doesn’t count but there are some health benefits you can reap when enjoyed in moderation.

Luckily for us, they can be so delicious to snack on or baked into a nice dish. The holidays are the perfect time to test out these Thanksgiving recipes for nut lovers.

I love nut butters and enjoy them in overnight oats that I eat practically everyday for breakfast. So many varieties of nuts, in my opinion, are the perfect addition to sweets. Macadamia nuts in cookies, pecans in pies, walnuts in brownies or muffins, or in the chocolate tart listed below. The opportunities are endless.

I’ve been making an effort recently to incorporate more nuts into our savory dishes as well. I mean if they’re that good for our health, I wanna make sure we get our servings in!

Walnuts are phenomenal in roasted veggie medleys or tossed in sweet potato ANYthing. Pine nuts are a necessary addition into couscous and pesto sauces. And do not forget the almond slivers to top off your salads!

Here you’ll find some amazing dishes to serve up at Thanksgiving that all incorporate at least one type of nut. My mouth was watering while compiling this post and I cannot wait to give these a tray! Here’s to hoping you get inspired. Nut lovers rejoice!

Thanksgiving is the ultimate food holiday and I love finding creative takes on traditional dishes. YES pumpkin and green bean casserole are incredible, but green bean amandine and a chocolate nut tart sound like just the right amount of novelty to bring some excitement to this year’s festivities.
