Great Health Tip of the Day: Try a new spin on nuts!
Nuts are a very nutritious choice! They are high in heart-healthy fats (unsaturated fats and omega-3s), fiber, and protein. Studies show that eating nuts can be protective against heart disease and weight gain. Be sure to enjoy nuts in moderation—1-2 ounces a day is best. Here are some great ways to enjoy nuts:
- Peanut butter, almond butter, and other nut butters. Try Harmons fresh ground nut butters! Eat it with a banana, whole grain crackers, on toast, or in a smoothie.
- Mix a 1 ounce (about 22 almonds) of nuts with some dried fruit for a satisfying snack.
- Sprinkle nuts on top of a salad, steamed vegetable, stew, or stir fry dish.
- Mix into your yogurt.
- Make a peanut sauce to put over a stir fry or use as a veggie dip.
