Go Nuts for National Nut Day

Go Nuts for National Nut Day

Event: National Nut Day
Date: Tuesday 22 October 2013
Where: Nationwide

National Nut Day is back! Tuesday 22 October 2013 is a day for New Zealanders to embrace a little nuttiness and show their appreciation for the delicious and nutritious nut.

Alison’s Pantry and Mother Earth have again joined forces in support of the day to ensure Kiwis across the country are aware of the many advantages of eating nuts.

Nuts are the ultimate fast food. They are a powerhouse of different vitamins and minerals and provide a concentrated source of unsaturated fat, fibre, vitamin E and a number of other nutrients often in short supply in the modern diet. A daily handful (30g) is a wonderful meal ingredient or snack on the go.

Studies have shown that including nuts in the daily diet can also be beneficial in reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease, promoting weight loss, even reducing fine lines and promoting shiny hair!
