2013 has been a great year for Nuts for Life – we celebrated our 10th Anniversary – 10 years of championing NUTrition. There has been so much positive research shared about the health benefits of nuts this year and another great study published in the New England Journal of Medicine is outlined below – nut eaters live longer!
T’is the season to be nutty! I always think of my Nana’s Christmas table at this time of year. As a child we would arrive on her doorstep on Christmas Day and we would settle around the dining table cracking open nuts in shell until lunch was ready. Macadamias required the hammer on the back step however and who doesn’t love using a hammer!
I’m glad I’m not the only nutty one though. Aussies love nuts at Christmas. Nuts sales go up by 40-50% in December. So if you’re not baking your Christmas puddings, cookies and cakes, add a bowl of nuts to the Christmas table or include nuts as ingredients into your festive feast. Nuts add great taste and texture to meals. Need inspiration? Look no further than our recipe pins at www.pinterest.com/nutsforlife
The team at Nuts for Life thanks all our NutENews readers for their continued support in 2013. We send Season’s Greetings, and wish everyone a happy and safe Christmas and a wonderful 2014 when we will have more nutty news to share. Particularly with the launch of our new website.
