We’re Nuts For These National Nut Day Recipes

We’re Nuts For These National Nut Day Recipes

Annually observed on October 22nd, National Nut Day celebrates the healthy nutritious snack that is the nut. Filled with healthy fats, proteins, and energy, nuts have been primary sources of nutrients for humans and animals alike throughout the years. The reason for this is because of their ability to resist decay throughout the winter.

 

Since ancient history, nuts have been in the human diet. Nuts are excellent sources of monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats, selenium, potassium, magnesium, folate, copper, and vitamins E and B2, among other nutrients. According to several dietary studies, people who regularly consume raw unsalted nuts are less likely to suffer coronary heart disease. Almonds and walnuts, for instance, can help lower LDL cholesterol levels.

 

Where Did We Go Wrong?

We had a good thing going by eating raw nuts, but then we decided to roast and coat them with artificial flavorings, sugars, salt, and array of chemicals. What was wrong with regular almonds or walnuts, people? When you eat nuts with all of these processed ingredients, the nutritional properties essentially cancel out. Instead, you consume excess sodium that can lead to cardiovascular disease, instead of fighting cardiovascular disease with the inherent health properties of raw nuts!

 

Sorry we went on that rant, but it was necessary. To help you celebrate National Nut Day, here are some of our favorite recipes! Let us know which ones you enjoy in the comments below.
