Let talk nuts, nuts, and more NUTS!

No, no……not talking about the ones you see on tv or the ones you know personally, but the kind you EAT! 🙂

Nuts, believe it or not, are considered to be fruits.  All nuts offer different health benefits but generally, they are all high in protein, calcium and good fats! Just a small handful can offer a quick boost of energy. That’s nature’s way of showing us that big things DO come in small packages! But even though nuts are generally high in fat, they’re packed chock-full with  heart-healthy, monounsaturated fats which helps to lower blood cholesterol and prevent heart disease….the GOOD stuff we want….your heart will thank you for it! 🙂

With so many different varieties, researchers now report that nuts may have a myriad of health benefits, from preventing heart disease and diabetes to fighting cancer. Now that’s information to go nuts over!

Finally, most nuts are excellent sources of fiber and vitamins, which help keep your body running like a smoothly oiled machine.

They make an excellent in-between meal snack! Since I always have a sweet tooth and don’t always want to run to chocolate, what I do is take a ziplock bag, grab a handful each of almonds, cashews, and peanuts, top it of with a handful of dried cherries or cranberries and VOILA! I have a travel bag of ready-to-eat, energy-boosting goodness!

AND…….

It knocks out my sweet tooth! So don’t let the squirrel take all your nuts, get some today and start your way to a good, healthy heart!!! 😀
