While you're frying up some eggs and bacon, we're cooking up something else: a way to celebrate today's food holiday.
It may sound a bit nutty, but August 3 is National Grab Some Nuts Day!
Nuts are considered to be a superfood: They're high in protein and contain monounsaturated fat, which can decrease a person's risk of heart disease and help boost their good cholesterol levels. Their portability also makes them a fantastic on-the-go snack. In fact, it’s been shown that crunchy snacks - like nuts - help improve mood and alertness.
Nuts are high in oil content, which means they can also spoil quickly. To prevent your stash from going bad, store them in an airtight container in the fridge or freezer.
