Olive Oil in dressings or Rice Bran Oil,
MORE nuts
Oily Fish such as Sardines, Salmon and/or Tuna
Pumpkin Seeds

I used to eat very little fat, too, but had to gradually get it up. My Dietitian prescribing Omega-3 Fish Oil Supplements for a health issue, helped considerably, because I had to go up to 8,000 mgs daily (8g fat). IF you want to go down that route, tho', check with your Dr that it is compatible to any healthy condition or medications that you are on.

Ground Flax-seed on cereal is also another option.

You could accommodate the extra nuts by swapping something else higher calorie for a couple pieces of fruit. Just play around with your food until you get something that resembles a healthy balance.

Add olive oil(or another healthy oil) to your salads or veggies... Eat avocados... yogurt with some fat in it or a cheese stick, if you eat dairy... put peanut butter in your oatmeal, if you eat grains... add a whole egg into egg whites. My problem is eating less fat emoticon .
