No More Jiggly Butts!
Go a Little Nuts at Holiday Parties This Year
Whether you’re a health nut or just a nut lover, you've probably heard that these hard-shelled seeds help keep your weight and cholesterol down, cancer at bay, and your heart, well, hardy. But do you know your filberts from your macadamias, your walnuts from your almonds -- health wise, that is? Just in time for all those nut bowls and party platters, here are the specific benefits of each. Think small handfuls, though, not mindless munching.

I thought this might be of interest to some folks on here. at least it'll help you justify eating the nuts - and mebbe help you portion things out (cuz you'll be thinking "okay, I've had 10 macademia nuts - that's all I need of those!" - right?)... I know I will be crackin' open walnuts, brazil nuts, and hazelnuts around the fireplace for the holidays. mm mm mmmm!
