Food for Thought :Eating Nuts , Seeds is Heart Healthy

Eating nuts and seeds as part of a healthy diet can be good for your heart. Nuts contain unsaturated fatty acids and other nutrients which are good for you. Although there are some differences in nutrients, all nuts have a lot of nutrition packed into a small package. Nuts are packed with protein. Nuts have some combination of unsaturated fats, omega-3 fatty acids, fiber, and vitamin E. Nuts are typically inexpensive, easy to store, and a great on the go snack. Here are a few tips to help you add more nuts and seeds to your diet:

1.   Nuts are a great health food, but they do have calories and fat. You want to make sure that you keep your portions in check. Roughly one-third cup is a serving of nuts.
2 .   Sprinkle nuts on top of cereal or yogurt. Almonds, pistachios, and walnuts make great choices as toppers. Add nuts and seeds to pancakes, muffins or waffles. Add an interesting twist to pasta dishes or vegetables by adding pine nuts.
3 .   To get the best flavor, toast nuts. Bake them for 5- 10 minutes at 350 degrees.

Words of  Wisdom :

“Nothing truly valuable arises from ambition or from a mere sense of duty; it stems rather from love and devotion towards men and towards objective things.” 

“From long familiarity, we know what honor is. It is what enables the individual to do right in the face of complacency and cowardice. It is what enables the soldier to die alone, the political prisoner to resist, the singer to sing her song, hardly appreciated, on a side street.” 

“Destiny is not a matter of chance, it is a matter of choice. It is not a thing to be waited for, it is a thing to be achieved.” 

“When you are inspired by some great purpose, some extraordinary project, all your thoughts break their bonds: Your mind transcends limitations, your consciousness expands in every direction, and you find yourself in a new, great, and wonderful world. Dormant forces, faculties and talents become alive, and you discover yourself to be a greater person by far than you ever dreamed yourself to be.” 

“Time is too slow for those who wait, too swift for those who fear, too long for those who grieve, too short for those who rejoice, but for those who love, time is eternity.”
