JUMBO MEDJOOL DATES

Jumbo Medjool Dates are one of our crown jewels at Nuts.com. Plump, moist, and luscious, medjool dates are simply divine. They’re extremely large and meaty with a tiny pit. Naturally sweet with no sugar added, Medjool dates make a healthy treat packed with potassium. We also carry pitted dates.

8 Health Benefits of Medjool Dates
1. Low in Fat, Rich in Vitamins

Jumbo Medjool dates are loaded with the energy you need every day to win a marathon or get you through a tough day. With only 24 calories per date (248 per 100 gram serving), dates are high in dietary fiber, carbohydrates, and contain more potassium than bananas! Yet they are virtually fat, cholesterol and sodium free!

2. Meet Your Daily Fruit Requirement

A handful of dates will help you meet the 5-A-Day goal. Five to six delicious California dates or a cup of chopped dates equals one serving. Great tasting, power-packed California dates are part of the USDA Pyramid’s food group. Eating jumbo Medjool dates can help you achieve the recommended goal for fruit servings each day.

3. High in Both Soluble and Insoluble Fiber

The American Cancer Society recommends that you consume 20-35 grams of dietary fiber a day. Dietary fiber comes in two forms – soluble and insoluble. Each serves a valuable function. Insoluble fiber increased the rate at which food moves through the digestive system. Soluble fiber may help control diabetes by decreasing elevated blood glucose levels. Soluble fiber also had been found to help lower serum cholesterol levels, particularly undesirable low density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol. Medjool dates are a good source of dietary fiber. A serving of power-packed California dates, just 5 to 6 six dates, can provide 3 grams of dietary fiber. That’s 14 percent of your recommended daily value.

4. Natural Energy Booster

A serving of power-packed California dates contains 31 grams of carbohydrates, making them a powerhouse of energy. Carbohydrates include 3 grams of dietary fiber and 29 grams of naturally occurring sugars such as fructose, glucose and sucrose to provide quick energy and are readily used by the body. California dates are a perfect energy boosting snack.

5. Regulate Blood Pressure

Ounce per ounce, pound for pound, jumbo Medjool dates are one of the best natural sources of potassium. Potassium is an essential mineral your body needs to maintain muscle contractions including the vital heart muscle. Potassium is needed to maintain a healthy nervous system and to balance the body’s metabolism. Since potassium is not stored in the body, and much is lost in perspiration, it must be continually replenished. As you consume potassium you excrete sodium, helping to keep blood pressure down. As people age, their kidneys become less efficient at eliminating sodium. About a 400 mg increase in potassium intake has been associated with a 40% reduction in the risk of stroke. This roughly amounts to one additional serving daily of California dates.

6. Contain 3X As Much Potassium As Bananas

Eating jumbo Medjool dates and drinking water is an ideal, natural way to replenish the potassium. A serving of California dates contain 240 milligrams of potassium or 7% of the recommended daily value. Bite for bite, they have three times the amount of potassium as bananas!

7. Excellent Source of B-Vitamins

Medjool dates contain a variety of B-complex vitamins – thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, vitamin B-6 and pantothenic acid. These vitamins have a variety of functions that help maintain a healthy body- to metabolize carbohydrates and maintain blood glucose levels, fatty acids for energy, and they help make hemoglobin, the red and white blood cells.

8. Rich in Magnesium and Iron

Magnesium is essential for healthy bone development and for energy metabolism. One serving of California dates provides 4% of the suggested daily intake of magnesium. Iron is essential to red blood cell production. Red blood cells carry all the nutrients to cells throughout the body. One serving of California dates contains nearly a third of the Recommended Dietary Allowance for iron.

Our Registered Dietitian’s Top Pick
Our Registered Dietitian and Health Nut likes jumbo Medjool dates (nickname: king of dates) because they are large and naturally sweet with no added sugar. One serving of Medjool dates is about 5 – 6 dates and each serving delivers insoluble and soluble fiber, which can help to balance blood sugar levels. Medjool dates (pits removed) make a delicious base for DIY energy bites mixed with other Health Nut favorites like cacao nibs, quinoa puffs, and dried apricots.

Ingredients
Dates (Contains pits). *REFRIGERATE UPON RECEIVING* Packaged in the same facility as peanuts, tree nuts, soy, and milk products.

It’s Nuts, I tell you! – Chia Seeds

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

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!!

Super Bowl Recipes Low in Saturated Fat

Just in time for your Super Bowl Party, from the Eating Well web site, its Super Bowl Recipes Low in Saturated Fat.

 

 

Super Bowl Recipes Low in Saturated FatEating Well

Lightened-up, healthy football favorites for Game Day.
You’ll score a touchdown with our healthy Super Bowl recipes that are low in saturated fat. We’ve lightened up favorite football snacks like Buffalo wings, chips and dips, chili, pizza, chicken tenders and more, so you can focus on the game while enjoying what you eat.

 

 

Buffalo Chicken Casserole
We took the classic flavors of Buffalo wings—hot sauce, blue cheese, carrots and celery—and created a finger-licking-good casserole. Serve this dish during football season to a hungry crowd and it’s sure to be a hit. We don’t typically recommend ingredients by brand name, but in this case we make an exception for Frank’s RedHot Sauce. It has the perfect balance of spice and tang for this casserole. Texas Pete and Crystal hot sauces are suitable alternatives if you can’t find Frank’s…..

 

 
Sausage, Pepper & Mushroom Pizza
This sausage, pepper and mushroom pizza is just a little more work than calling for delivery (but not by much), but there’s no tipping required when you make it yourself. Plus you get it fresh from your oven, and with whole-wheat dough and a generous amount of vegetables on top it’s far better for you……….
