Oh nuts………….

Nuts are prone to turning rancid when exposed to air and light. The best way to store nuts is in the freezer or refrigerator in an air tight container or in vacuum sealed packaging. Especially with the warmer temperatures out.

Restaurant Favorites Made Healthy
From Chinese restaurant recipes like General Tso’s Chicken to Italian pasta dishes like Fettuccine Alfredo, our delicious homemade versions of restaurant favorites are healthier options that save you calories and money. Instead of going out to eat, make one of these healthy recipes at home.

General Tso’s Chicken
In this healthy version of a General Tso’s Chicken recipe, we cut the fat and sodium in half from the original version by not frying the chicken and by using half as much soy sauce in this Chinese-takeout favorite. Serve with steamed baby bok choy or sautéed spinach and steamed brown rice…………..

Spicy Pecan Popcorn Chicken
These spicy and crunchy pecan-crusted chicken nuggets are paired with a quick, creamy ranch dip. If you can’t find coarse breadcrumbs, substitute Grape-Nuts cereal instead………..

Sweet and Sour Pork
Pineapple, tomato and pork combine in a sweet-tangy sauce in this easy, bright- flavored sweet and sour pork stir-fry. This dish does have a fair amount of acid (from vinegar, tomatoes and pineapple), which can affect the patina of your wok. So remove the food from the wok as soon as you’re done cooking, and if your wok shows any signs of rusting, reseason it (see Tips)………

DRIED PEACHES
We take pride in our dried peaches—if you ask us, they’re the best-tasting dried peaches our green Earth has to offer. Domestically grown in California, you’ll fall in love with these peaches after just one bite. Dried peaches are moist, delicious and full of potassium.

Health Benefits of Dried Peaches
1 – Red-pigmented beta-carotene is a powerful member of the antioxidant family. Visible in the vibrant orange color of California peaches, beta-carotene is transformed to vitamin A in the body.

2 – Vitamin A plays a crucial role in maintaining the skin, internally and externally, as well as in protecting the eyes, building strong teeth and bones and healthy hair. Additionally, research indicates that vitamin A has been linked to reduced rates of cancer and heart disease. Just one serving of California peaches contains six percent of the U.S. RDA for vitamins.

3 – Vitamin C boosts the immune system, promotes healing and helps prevent cancer, heart disease and stroke. This aggressive antioxidant is essential to optimum health and California peaches can help. One half-cup serving of canned peaches contains eight percent of the U.S. RDA.

4 – Research indicates that vitamin E is particularly effective in preventing heart disease and breast cancer. While vitamin E is primarily found in vegetable oils, nuts, seeds and wheat germ, California peaches contain a significant amount. In a study conducted by Ohio State University, one half-cup serving of canned peaches contributes up to 24% of the U.S. RDA for vitamin E.

5 – Peaches offer a source of carbohydrates, protein, dietary fiber, vitamin C and vitamin A. This nutritious fruit also contains boron, known to boost estrogen levels in postmenopausal women, stimulate the brain, and aid in prevention of osteoporosis.
