!Crazy Hot Nuts!

A nut isn't just a nut anymore! There are 53 varieties of nuts. Can you name them all? Some nuts we love to eat are: almonds, pecans, walnuts, peanuts, pine nuts and cashews.


Nuts are Nutritious

  1. Some nuts promote good cardiovascular health, help fight the affects of Alzheimer's, dementia, and Parkinson's.
  2. Many nuts help lower LDL (bad cholesterol) and raise HDL (good cholesterol) when eaten in the proper balance. 
  3. Most nuts contain similar nutrients and are packed with vitamins, minerals, omega-3 fatty acids, protein, antioxidants, and energy.
  4. A few nut oils are used as great skin emollients.
  5. Many nuts, when eaten on a regular basis and in the proper quantity, help keep bones strong.
  6. Some nuts contain high levels of serotonin, a brain chemical that enhances mood and fights depression and migraines.
  7. Lastly, many nuts help with weight loss and raise metabolism.

When nuts are combined with chile peppers; such as cayenne, habanero, jalapeno, and ghost pepper; nutritional health benefits increase. Chile peppers also promote heart health, enhance mood, help raise metabolism, encourage weight loss, and are packed with vitamins and minerals. Not to mention; they make mouths smile and faces shine!

So, a nut doesn't have to be a nut anymore!  Think of nuts in a whole new light!  Be healthy by becoming friendly with NUTS!
