Nuts are a good source of fiber, healthy fats, and protein. Plus, they’re great on their own, paired with fruit, or added to dishes like salads, desserts, and grains.

  1. Almonds
  2. Pistachios
  3. Walnuts
  4. Cashews
  5. Pecans
  6. Macadamia

MONEY

Have an Emergency? Here's where to find cash

If you have an emergency fund, congratulations you are one of the few. When emergencies pile up, where do you come up with the cash to cover them? If you know you will need cash for something coming up—such as new tires for your car—you can apply for a credit card with a zero percent promotional interest rate that lasts for the first 12 to 18 months - and then pay it down. If you don’t want to go the credit card route—or you don’t qualify for a credit card—a Roth IRA can also provide a source of emergency funds. Because the account is funded on an after-tax basis, any contributions you’ve made can be withdrawn without taxes or penalties. Other options are also your 401(k) or - mom and dad.
