Peanuts

Aww, nuts! Peanuts aren't actually nuts! Botanically, these tasty treats are considered legumes. Although a classic treat for a baseball game, peanuts are often shied away from because of their high fat content. However, in moderation, the healthy fats that raw peanuts offer have actually been linked to better heart health. Peanuts contain more than 30 essential vitamins and minerals, including vitamin E, niacin, folate and manganese. Protein is also abundant in peanuts, making it a filling snack.
