The Answer:

Pine nuts

Your Answers:
A. Brazil nuts - 23%
B. Pecans - 3%
C. Pine nuts - 47%
D. Walnuts - 24%

The Answer: Pine Nuts
On 10/29/12, Dr. Oz talked about a little seed that just may be a giant fat buster. Pine nuts have been used for centuries to curb appetite when food supplies were low. Heart healthy fatty acids in pine nuts can support the burning of belly fat. Protein in pine nuts help you to feel full and support balanced blood sugar levels playing a role in reducing cravings.

Dr. Oz says to eat a shot glass worth of pine nuts daily, which totals about 60 calories. Pinolenic acid is a naturally occurring fat in pine nuts that is believed to be responsible in helping people cut their calorie intake and support a weight loss program.

Dr. Oz loves to eat pine nuts raw and he prefers to eat them in the morning to support balanced blood sugar levels all day. Pine nuts can be ground up and added to pesto for a healthy pasta sauce. Add pine nuts to salads and pair with the pine nut pesto for a healthy and balanced meal. 

Brazil Nuts
For a healthy snack, Dr. Oz says to reach for Brazil nuts. Filled with magnesium, fiber, protein, and healthy fats, Brazil nuts can be a energizing and satisfying snack. Eat a few Brazil nuts everyday to boost energy.

On the 5/31/12 episode of The Dr. Oz Show: The Memory Cure, pecans were recommended as a healthy brain snack. So if you answered pecans to this week's quiz you get half points because the were recommended on a previous show – just not last week's show.

Pecans have choline which are good for the memory. [From Pecans are high in omega-3 essential fatty acids, the highest amount of antioxidant of any tree nut...Recent studies have shown that eating pecans can play a role in reducing the risks of neural degeneration.]

On the 10/12/12 episode: Dr. Weil's Anti-Inflammatory Foods, walnuts were recommended as a great source of polyphenals which support healthy inflammation levels in the body. Dr. Oz has often mentioned topping Greek yogurt with walnuts as a healthy snack that will keep you feeling full longer.
