It is very essential to eat healthy to stay fit. For this, it is a must to eat a handful of dry fruits every day to add to the nutritional value of intake every day and also get required energy. Since dry fruits are rich sources of vitamins, proteins, minerals as well as fats, they keep one healthy and strong. According to health experts, one should have a combination of certain nuts every day to meet daily nutritional requirement of the body.
Just as it is important for everyone to eat nuts, it is more required for sportsmen and athletes to have a combination of certain nuts daily to get energy. Popularly called as a natural source of energy, nuts like walnuts, almonds, cashew nuts, dates, peanuts as well as pistachios contain omega-3 fatty acids, which are good for health and not fattening.
