Keep a container with an interesting nut mix in your kitchen and on your way out grab a handful, or partly fill a small plastic baggie. In the Dutch study, researchers analyzed the diets of more than 120,000 adults aged 55 to 69, and checked back 10 years later. Those who ate at least 10 grams of nuts daily were less likely to have died of cancer, diabetes, heart trouble, and other common causes. Ten grams is about 8 almonds, or 6 cashews, and around 60 calories, much of them from heart-healthy fats.
