Nut Day
October 22, 2013 in the USA

It’s National Nut Day! Nuts are one of the healthiest, most nutritious, and most delicious snacks. Medical studies have shown that eating nuts reduces hypertension and the risks associated with heart disease. Nuts are also full of protein, fiber, and unsaturated fat.

Americans loooove their nuts. In fact, nearly one out of every 10 eats nuts, or a nut product, at least once a day!

Did you know that peanuts are not really nuts? They are legumes and belong to the bean family. Some popular types of nuts include pecans, walnuts, pistachios, almonds, and macadamia nuts.
