Nuts are an easy way to add flavor and nutrition to any meal or snack. They are packed with important vitamins, minerals, and plant compounds that may help reduce the risk for chronic disease. Research shows that adding nuts can be a very beneficial nutritional practice. Which nuts should you eat daily? Don’t know the difference between a macadamia or pistachio? Pecan or walnut? We’ll discuss the basics of the nut family, along with samples and suggestions for adding nuts to your diet. Those with nut allergies should NOT attend. Registration deadline is March 18, or when class reaches a capacity of 30 people.
