Has the holidays got you a little Nutty? So much to do and shopping trips to the store we often forget to fill up on healthy snacks to keep us going.

Nuts are a popular holiday treat and can provide significant health benefits too! They are a source of fat, but most nuts have mostly unsaturated fat, making them healthier choices. Because nuts are uniquely fats and proteins they offer an ability to fuel the body for longer periods of time than carbohydrates alone. That is why nuts and nut butters are always a perfect match with foods such as fruits, vegetables, or whole grains. Serve nuts like pecans, walnuts, almonds, and peanuts as snacks, or add nut butters to main dishes, salads, muffins, or crackers. There are over 60 delicious recipes on our site giving you creative ideas of how to utilize nut or seed butters in your everyday cooking. Check out www.betsysbest.com

So it is ok to go a little Nutty this holiday season because now you know how good they are for you! Happy Healthy Holidays!
