For your overall good health, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration recommends 1.5oz of nuts a day (or about 42 grams, or roughly 1/3 cup), which is equal to a small handful. A handful of nuts corresponds to a standard serving size and is approximately equal to:

  • 24 shelled almonds
  • 14 shelled walnut halves
  • 16 cashews
  • 20 hazelnuts
  • 15 macadamias
  • 15 pecans
  • 28 peanuts
  • 2 tablespoons of pine nuts
  • 45 pistachio kernels
  • 7 Brazil nuts kernels
  • 3 tablespoons of seeds (sunflowers seeds, pumpkin seeds, chia seeds, flax seeds, sesame seeds
  • mixed nuts: about two of each of the ten nut varieties

A handful of nuts a day keeps the doctor away. Literally.
