October 22nd National Nut Day

How many different types of nuts do you think there are? Well, if you don’t count the human nuts, there are 17. (Get your mind out of the gutter) Nuts are filled with Vitamin E and B2 and contain a lot of protein and fiber so guess what, they are actually good for us! Today was created by Liberation Foods Company in the UK and is continued on by the Fair Trades Organization of the UK to celebrate the nut. Oh, and a peanut is not a nut, it’s a legume and part of the pea family. So if you are up to it, have some Goober Peas as they have been called in the South… I wonder if they knew the peanut was a pea at the time the song was written?

How to celebrate – Educate yourself on the 17 types of nuts. Use nuts as your snack food. Make sure you are allergic to nuts.
