In addition to the high protein content of legumes, the nuts in plant foods are actually very good. Let’s first understand the protein content of several nuts that are often eaten:
Peanuts: 24.8 grams of protein/100 grams
Walnuts: 14.9 grams of protein/100 grams
Cashew nuts: 17.3 grams of protein/100 grams
Pumpkin seed kernels: 33.2 g protein/100 g
There is a clear suggestion in the [Diet Book] that an adult’s daily intake of about 30 grams of nuts is good for human health. Indeed, nuts are the seeds of plants, and seeds are responsible for germination and reproduction. Therefore, they are rich in nutrients that are very comprehensive, not only protein, but also fatty acids, vitamins, minerals, and even a variety of enzymes and plant active ingredients.
But at the same time, we should also understand that although nuts are good, they cannot be eaten more, because their fat content is correspondingly high, so it is recommended not to exceed 30 grams per day, which is about a small handful. If you really don’t have a good grasp of it and worry about eating too much, there are also a lot of very user-friendly daily nuts that are individually packaged, one bag per day, and there are several kinds of them, one bag between 25 and 30 grams.
