I eat lots of nuts. I make my own mixture because buying mixed nuts there are always some I don’t like or want to avoid. My mixture includes Pecans, Walnuts, Almonds, Sunflower Seeds and Peanuts.
I even keep a small bag in my purse.  Good source of fiber to! 

Net Carbs per ounce:

Dry roasted peanuts with sea salt = 3g
Almonds with sea salt= 2g
Walnuts= 2g
Pecans= 1g
Sunflower Seeds= 3g

I think I need some Fiber…
