While nuts are a common go-to for many people looking for an energy snack, Camilla Saulsbury, food writer and health expert extraordinaire, prefers seeds.

"I became addicted to seeds in graduate school because they are a fraction of the cost of nuts and yet have as many, or more of the nutritional benefits, including protein, healthy fats, fiber, vitamins, and minerals. Sunflower seeds and pepitas (green pumpkinseeds) are my favorites, but I am partial to hemp seeds, chia seeds, sesame seeds, and flaxseeds, too. I use them in place of nuts in baked goods, add them to smoothies, make dried fruit and seed trail mix, and eat larger seeds straight up," she says.
