Mixed Nuts:  The facts about your favorite nuts – PEANUTS

Serving Size 1oz (about 28 peanuts) = 170 calories

Peanuts are technically a legume, they’re rich in folate (which helps produce and maintain new cells), oleic acid, and resveratrol, the heart-healthy antioxidant found in red wine and dark chocolate.  If you boil peanuts in the shell, cup for cup, you’ll get more resveratrol than in raw ones or peanut butter, in amounts comparable to a 5-ounce glass of red wine.

Nutty Ideas:  Drizzle a handful with melted dark chocolate and refrigerate until firm for a healthy dessert.  Add shelled nuts to stir-fries for an added crunch.
