HALF POPPED POPCORN
This Half Popped Popcorn is not quite popcorn and not quite Corn Nuts ®, but it definitely has just the right amount of crunch. If Goldilocks had her choice of crunchy snack options, she would pick this half popped popcorn any day. Regular popcorn can be too soft and Corn Nuts ® can be too crunchy, but this one is just right!

6 Reasons to Love Half Popped Popcorn
1) Non-GMO: Half popped popcorn is a non-GMO snack made from whole grain field corn. Non-GMO snacks make us happy!

2) Gluten-Free: The next time a snack attack strikes, make sure you have this gluten-free and grain-free snack on-hand. In fact, our half popped popcorn takes it a step further because it’s Certified Gluten-Free by GFCO.

3) Excellent Source of Fiber: Each one-ounce serving of partially popped popcorn packs four grams of dietary fiber. That’s 16 percent of the daily value for fiber!

4) No Scary Ingredients: Simple is better when it comes to half popped popcorn. That’s why this snack contains no artificial flavors, preservatives, hydrogenated oils, or corn syrup.

5) No More Popcorn Fights: Do you fight with your family and friends over who gets to eat those last delicious half popped morsels at the bottom of every popcorn bag? Half popped popcorn puts an end to those fights. There’s more than enough to go around in every bag.

6) More Than One Way to Enjoy: We love snacking on half popped popcorn right out of the bag! It also adds a nice crunch to salads and is a fun addition to trail mix. Try half popped kernels with a beer or glass of wine. There’s no wrong way to enjoy them!

Whole Corn, Soybean or Sunflower Oil, Sea salt. Packaged in the same facility as peanuts, tree nuts, soy, and milk products.

ORGANIC DRIED MANGO
Our organic dried mango is naturally sweet, rich and vibrant. It’s simply mango with no additives or sweeteners. We source the sweetest and choicest mango “cheeks” we could find, so the pieces are large and delicious. Our organic mango is peeled and cut by hand at the peak of ripeness so you can really taste the difference. Oh, it is a bit harder to chew, so be careful, but it’s worth it.

Health Benefits of Dried Mango
Organic dried mango is a healthy option for satisfying your sweet tooth. It delivers a rich source of dietary fiber which makes this delicious tropical fruit a satisfying snack that keeps you feeling full and supports the digestive system. As an abundant source of vitamin C, a serving of organic mango goes a long way to boost your immune system. Vitamin C also acts as a protective antioxidant in the body to defend cells against the damaging effects of free radicals.

It’s Nuts, I tell you! – Chia Seeds

July 7, 2016 at 5:32 AM | Posted in NUTS COM | 2 Comments

Besides the selection of Nuts at the Nuts website (https://nuts.com/) they have a fantastic selection of healthy snacks, one being Chia Seeds. Wait, you didn’t know that Chia Seeds were healthy well here’s some great facts from the Nuts website.

 
7 Good Reasons to Start Eating Chia Seeds – from the Nuts website!NUTS2 LOGO
1 – Help weight loss. Chia seeds are popular for weight loss. They reduce food cravings by preventing some of the food that you eat from getting absorbed into your system. This blockage of calorie absorption makes them a great diet helper.
2 – Feel fuller faster: They can also help your diet by making you feel full. This is because they absorb 10 times their weight in water, forming a bulky gel.
3 – Hydration for athletes: They are also great for athletes because the “chia gel” can hydrate the body.
4 – Reduce your blood pressure: There’s evidence to suggest they can reduce blood pressure.
5 – Omega-3: They are the richest plant source of Omega-3 (the vital fats that protect against inflammation—such as arthritis—and heart disease). In fact, they contain more Omega-3 than salmon!
6 – Benefits for diabetes: Because chia seeds slow down how fast our bodies convert carbohydrates into simple sugars, studies indicate they can control blood sugar. This leads scientists to believe chia seeds may have great benefits for diabetics.
7 – They are easier to digest than flax seeds, and don’t need to be ground up.

WHY YOU SHOULD GET YOUR CHIA SEEDS FROM US
1 – Price: Our prices are much lower than some other suppliers. That’s because we’re one of America’s biggest suppliers of chia seeds. Also, we deal directly with the farmers, so there’s no “middleman”.
2 – They are great quality. If you don’t believe us, buy some of our chia seeds and some from elsewhere, and do yourself a blindfolded test—like the Pepsi Challenge but with more Omega-3.
3 – Our customers love them. See their almost deliriously happy comments below.
4 – No added weirdness: Our chia seeds were “raised well”; they are raw, non-GMO, non-irradiated, and produced without pesticides. Yippee!
5 – We guarantee to be in stock and will ship out the same business day.

OUR REGISTERED DIETITIAN’S TOP PICK
Our Registered Dietitian and Health Nut chooses chia seeds as a top pick because of their overall nutrition package NUTS1including: healthy fats, fiber, and minerals. In fact, just one tablespoon of chia seeds provides nearly 20 percent of your daily fiber goals. Plus, chia seeds are rich in essential fatty acids, which are a type of fat that the body needs to function that must come from food. Try stirring in a tablespoon of chia seeds into tea, juice or milk for a nutrient boost! Or thanks to their water absorbing properties, chia seeds are great for making pudding.
Chia seeds make an incredibly healthy—and often unnoticeable—addition to many foods.

Here are some great ways to enjoy chia seeds:

They can be eaten raw. (They have a nice “nutty” flavor.)
They can be soaked in fruit juice (in Mexico, they call this “chia fresca”).
They’re perfect in porridges and puddings.
They make an ideal addition to baked goods including breads, cakes and biscuits.
How Many Chia Seeds Should You Eat? We recommend two daily doses of about 20 g each (1.5 ounces total).

It’s Nuts I tell you!

I have a great site to pass along to everyone, Nuts.com (https://nuts.com/) A fantastic site that features recipes, healthy eating and snacks tips, and an incredible selection of items to purchase online. All kinds of nuts, sunflower NUTS2 LOGOseeds, dried fruit, coffee, and teas. That’s just some of selection of healthy items that you’ll find here! Below is the history of the company, just to give you a little background on them. Starting with this post and every Thursday I’ll be featuring a recipe or product of Nuts.com ( https://nuts.com/ ) Eat and snack the HEALTHY way!

 
About us
In 1929, on the brink of the Depression, our father and grandfather “Poppy” Sol took a bold step. 22 years old, he had already worked full time for 10 years to support his family. Yet he was ambitious, and wanted to live the American Dream and make the lives of everyone around him better. So, donning his best of suits and an assured smile on his face, Sol walked away from the bank with a loan to start his own business, the Newark Nut Company. The rest is history. Let us tell you all about it:

OUR STORY
As mentioned above, the vision and determination of our Poppy Sol is what launched the Newark Nut Company.nuts ad

He began selling premium bulk nuts and dried fruit at the popular Mulberry Street open-air market. Sol quickly developed a reputation for providing the very finest and freshest nuts available. Sol believed in choosing only the highest quality super colossal nuts from the world’s best growers. He would then roast the nuts to perfection for a fresh, delicious flavor.

Now, 87 years later, my cousin David and I represent the third generation of our family business. Although much has changed, our basic philosophy has not, and we continue the family tradition of providing the same superb quality and service as in the past. Our customers, some in their 80’s and 90’s, still rave about the splendid quality and luscious flavor of the products that have made our company famous throughout the years. A visit to the shop today will make your mouth water as the aroma of the freshly roasted peanuts and corn kernels popping tempt your taste buds. We love when customers come to our new location in Cranford to pick up orders and say hello. However, please keep in mind it is a warehouse location and you are unable to walk around and shop.

In 1999, we launched NutsOnline to bring our savory selection of more than 2,000 items right to your door. By 2011, NutsOnline became pretty well known across North America for great quality and service across a growing product offering. Our slogan, “We’re more than just nuts,” continued to ring true.

That being said, I can’t tell you the number of times I would make new friends and, before saying goodbye, they would say, “I’m excited to check you guys out. Nuts.com, right?” Even Rachael Ray made this mistake on her show! So, in January 2012, we decided to officially change our nuts to Nuts.com. Despite the name change, we are still the same – the same family, the same values, the same quality, and the same level of care. We buy directly from growers, so whether you want one pound or 1,000 pounds, we will gladly accommodate any of your needs, including wholesale. You can order online through our secure server, over the phone, or via fax or e-mail.

https://nuts.com/

 

 

We roast our nuts and pop our corn the same day we ship so they reach you deliciously fresh as if you bought them NUTS1from our shop. We do it the “Old Fashioned Way.” One taste and you will know the difference. My grandfather began building our reputation back in 1929 and, 87 years later, we continue to make sure that every product we sell is second to none. That’s a promise. 100% satisfaction guaranteed!

If you have any questions, comments, or suggestions, feel free to contact us!

Thanks and enjoy!
– Jeffrey (third generation) along with my dad, Kenny, my uncle, Sandy, my cousin, David, and the rest of the Nuts.com Family!!

Beets are better!…..

 
Beets are high in immune-boosting vitamin C, fiber, and essential minerals like potassium (essential for healthy nerve and muscle function) and manganese (which is good for your bones, liver, kidneys, and pancreas).

Need help squeezing in the most important meal of the day? Breakfast is a breeze with these simple tips on how to make a balanced on-the-go meal, along with easy, satisfying, and diabetes-friendly breakfast ideas.

 
The Importance of Breakfast for People with Diabetes

Eating a healthful breakfast can help control blood glucose, hunger, and weight. Breakfast is a chance to fill up on healthful fuel for the day’s activities and fit in some important food groups.

Get more mileage out of your breakfast by including satisfying fiber from whole grains and fruit and protein from low-fat dairy products and other lean protein sources. Need ideas? This slideshow will give you the basics on how to put a simple breakfast together in a snap, along with meal ideas that are already done for you — right down to the nutrition information. If you’re not hungry in the morning, start with a partial meal and build up….

 
Build a Balanced Breakfast

When compiling your first meal of the day, remember this simple formula:

Whole grain + dairy/protein + fruit = healthy breakfast

Include whole grains for the starch portion of your meal. This will be your main carbohydrate source. The dairy/protein digests more slowly than carbohydrate, helping you feel satisfied. And fruit is rich in essential vitamins, minerals, and fiber — plus it’s a healthy carbohydrate source.

Each of the following breakfasts has about 45 grams of carbohydrate and is a good source of fiber and protein. BONUS! They’re all easily portable if you’re on the go………
