Nuts are a healthy food that, when added to your diet in moderation and in place of fatty foods, can lower your cholesterol. Visit our Nutrition Section for detailed information on the benefits of eating nuts.
You can include nuts in your current recipes with minimal effort. Just include some in your salad to add variety to the different textures and tastes of your salad. If you are stir frying chicken and vegetables, experiment with adding a different variety of nut each time--almonds, chestnuts and Persian walnuts are particularly good in these dishes. Rice is another dish to which you can easily add nuts. We like chopped pistachios.. When my husband makes fruit smoothies, he always adds nuts to provide protein and enhance the texture and taste of his smoothie.
We have included a variety of recipes in this section of our Web site should you want to try something completely new.
