Fruit - not quite.
Veggies - not if they're not cooked in butter or oils.
Nuts - calories can add up fast if you're not careful.
Those bars - watch for calorie and sugar content. Some of them are calorically dense and offer little in return, in terms of macro/micronutrients.

Worried about the fat in nuts? Nope. They're healthy fats. The only fats you really need to concern yourself with is trans fat. And I wouldn't go balls to the walls on saturated fats, but there's a long story behind why they aren't so bad, but have potential. And if you didn't know, there are several different kind of fats. If you didn't know that, then I recommend finding out what they are and what the difference is.
