Nuts!

Nuts are good for you! No news there. But it seems they’re really good for you.

Research shows that if you eat them regularly you’ll live longer says Dr. Bill Elliot (see the link to his article below referencing a study by the New England Journal of Medicine). In short, consumption of nuts (all kinds) is like a magic potent. Studies of nut eaters over a long period showed those who eat nuts daily live significantly longer, have lower rates of cancer and lung disease, are less likely to smoke, more likely to eat good stuff and are thinner! Nuts to you!

To make it easy for life on the run, jog on down to Trader Joe’s and get their prepackaged servings of nuts to grab and go. Better yet, buy them in bulk and make your own little packs.
