Going nuts

I'm thinking no one's totally immune towards the world cup fever.  it has a way of permeating into our lives whether we want it to or not.  even if you're not a real soccer fan, the excitement of husbands, children, friends, officemates will rub on you.  somehow lol.

And as i type this my mind is already going into overdrive..  over what to snack on while we watch the game LOL.  the man especially looooves munching over nuts and swigging it down with frothy teh tarik :D

But you gotta be a lil chosey over the nuts tho. according to some research findings, you're better off if you stick to certain types of nuts:

In 2003, the FDA recognized the benefits of nuts and their role in heart disease prevention by approving a health claim for seven kinds of nuts (almonds, hazelnuts, peanuts, pecans, some pine nuts, pistachios and walnuts). There is one catch though: nuts are high in calories. Therefore, the best approach is to reap the health benefits of eating nuts as snacks without adding excessive calories to your daily intake. So, instead of simply adding nuts to your diet, eat them in replacement of foods that are high in saturated fats such as meat and limit your intake of these tasty snacks to one to two ounces per day.

And for those who'd rather bypass the path of destruction that we're obviously taking lol, take heart, theres also a healthier way of going about it [click here].

So, are your favourite teams playing tonite?

ahh.. A late comment.. (but I still one to put my two cents on this entry), huhu.

Nuts are good for us. opt them as a snack, by try to opt for the natural one (the one that you buy without the barcode). Usually. processed nuts are loaded with extra calories from palm olein, or other source of oils. and yeah, some of them are too salty! =p
