Peanuts and Mixed Nuts

I love peanuts and thank goodness, I am not allergic to any legumes. Boiled and deep-fried peanuts are my favorite snacks when I was growing up. I got this craving for nuts from my mom. I remembered our mother-daughter moments where we continuously munching mix nuts as we watch a movie or a TV show.

My favorite sandwich spread is plain peanut butter. I love it and I can't get enough of its taste and creaminess. I can even eat a spoonful of peanut butter and I will be alright. My mom would always prepare a bag of peanut butter sandwich almost every day for me to bring to school. I have no complains really since peanut butter is my favorite.

Anyway, do you share the same childhood memories about your favorite food and cravings? After all these years, peanuts are still my favorite and it will always be. Lately, I began to like pecans, hazelnuts and almonds. My most favorite is chocolate coated almonds.

I was able to check out and I was thrilled to know that they sell different kinds of nuts at affordable prices. They have cashew nuts, macadamias, pistachios, walnuts, pignolias and more which are sold from less than $10 up to $125+. Actually, sold these nuts by the pound but, some of these nuts are sold by a bag of 25 or 30 lbs. Just check it out for more information about nuts.

Peanuts are good source of mono-unsaturated fats which is good for a healthy heart. Peanut butter and peanuts decrease cardiovascular disease risks. Peanuts are good sources of vitamin E, niacin, folate, protein and manganese. According to a study, peanuts provide resveratrol, the phenolic antioxidant also found in red grapes. With all of the important nutrients provided by nuts, eating it is totally healthy!
