    I have posted this elsewhere but as part of another thread so it may not get noticed.

    I eat Mixed Nuts and Dried Fruit as a snack/Meal every day (Meal 2). They prevent me craving other snacks and currently provide me with most of my Fat intake.

    Macros per 100g

    523 Cal
    18.8g Protein
    35.7g Carbs
    32.2g Fat (5.7g Sat Fat)

    Thinking of switching to 50/50 mix of Blanched peanuts and Redskin peanuts.

    Macros per 100g

    616 Cal
    27.8g Protein
    17.7g Carbs
    46.5g Fat (8.4g Sat Fat)

    Anything wrong with this as a snack/Meal, assuming total calories and macros are accounted for?

    There is nothing necessarily wrong with this. It all depends when you plan on training. Nuts are generally regarded as a low carb snack,and shouldn't be planned around your workout. I eat nuts almost everyday, but in the late afternoons ( 4 pm ) to keep me full between lunch and dinner. I train in the mornings.
