For generations we have been cautioned about nut intake ... young children shouldn't eat nuts ... they contain too much fat ... nuts are difficult to digest ... they cause weight gain ... they inflame diverticula, the list goes on. Now, new research is finding that some of our long-held beliefs about nuts need rewriting!
Nuts have gained a place of honor in the nutritional regimens of millions of Americans. As more people turn to vegetarianism as a healthy alternative to meat-based diets or simply lower their meat intake, nuts have become valued as a great base for protein. And nuts come with tremendous health benefits!
