Why I'm here....

Since I've always been quick with an opinion an old friend once lost and again found suggested that perhaps I should share with more people my commentary. Never being one to pass on a challenge I thought I'd give it a whirl.

Sometimes You Feel Like a Nut?

I've never been a big nut or peanut fan. I rarely eat nuts, but lately I have taken up the cause of eating them. Why? For many reasons, but mostly because they are very filling and help keep hunger at bay. They are also full of vitamins that we need. They contain Protein, folic acid, Vitamin E, Niacin, Vitamin B6, Zinc, Copper and Potassium just to name a few. Believe it or not that isn't all of them. For me though there is no sport in buying the pre-shelled nuts. I have bought a bag for work and a bag for home of the in shell nuts. The ones at home have no salt and are all natural. I'll admit though the ones at work are roasted and salted. Exactly how do they do that while they are still in the shell? Either way it's been fun joking at work about how we could shell them and just throw the shells on the floor like they do in some restaurants. However, we have resisted the temptation to do that. Either way, I've found them quite enjoyable, and perhaps you could give them a try? Nuts have been linked to lower blood pressure and more energy in case studies. Don't know if any of it is correct. But I have been eating on them for a couple of days now on and off and I checked my blood pressure today and it was a little lower, even though work has had me stressed beyond belief. I also had more energy. Could just all be in the mind too. Guess I'll never know. But either way... sometimes you feel like a nut, or at least sometimes now I do. Just a thought.
