Don’t like nuts?  If you seldom eat nuts, then it’s time to reconsider.  There are many health benefits that you are missing by not eating these yummy jewels.  You may think that nuts are high in fat.  Yes, they are; but these fats are heart-friendly.

Did you know that if you eat nuts such as walnuts; almonds; cashews; or pistachios; you are less likely to suffer from heart attack?  Not only that.  Nuts are packed with antioxidants that are proven to ward off diseases.  And if you are watching your weight; nuts are great snacks as well.  Why?  Because they are filling!  Just a handful of nuts will make you feel full for a longer period of time.  Besides being rich in heart-healthy fats; nuts are also a rich source of protein and a host of other nutrients — phosphorous, folate, copper, magnesium, zinc, and selenium.  To know more about the great benefits of nuts; you can visit the nutsite.com.

My family loves nuts.  Serve my kids boiled peanuts and they’d nosh on them while watching TV.  Add them to foods and they would make a race on who gets the most nuts; so I try to include nuts in my cooking as much as possible.  Even on salads; nuts are great additions.  Here, try making this delicious and healthy dish for your family.

Pad Thai



  1. Heat 1 tbsp oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add shrimp and garlic and cook for 2 minutes minutes, stirring until cooked through. Transfer to a plate and set aside.
  2. Heat remaining oil over medium-high heat. Add eggs and stir just until set. Add the radish, carrots, scallion, drained rice sticks and vinegar mixture. Cook and stir for 1 minute, or until the rice sticks soften and wilt.
  3. Arrange on a serving platter; top with shrimp, peanuts and cilantro. Toss to mix.
  4. Pad Thai is best served right after adding the lime-juice dressing.
