Enjoy them: In spite of what you may read from entertainment sites online, your food choices have little impact on your health. If you like them, keep eating them.

Could be healthy: Several studies show that eating a handful of nuts can be good for cardiovascular health. Your pattern seems controlled and within those guidelines. So enjoy eating a handful each day; you are helping yourself.
