Did you know today, September 13th, is National Peanut Day?!
My favorite food has its own holiday. For good reason, too, because peanuts are:
- Full of protein with 7 grams per ounce.
- Contains Monounsaturated fats that help your heart and brain stay healthy.
- Food source of Coenzyme Q10 which protects the heart during periods of lack of oxygen. For example, high altitudes and clogged arteries.
- High antioxidant and high niacin content that helps in the recovery of cell damage and provides protection against Alzheimer’s disease and age-related cognitive problem.
- Not to mention tasty!
Celebrate today by snacking on peanuts, grabbing spoonfuls of peanut butter, and making tasty, peanut-filled recipes!
THOUGHT-PROVOKING, MIND-PRODDING QUESTION OF THE DAY:
What’s your favorite way to eat peanuts? Are you going to join me in celebrating?
