Time to say goodbye

C'est la vie!

Unfortunately the time has come for me to retire this blog and to vent my attention to my new web and graphic design company. This blog will become inactive and no new content will be posted.


Thank you all so much for reading my posts and following all my weird adventures and cooking antics.

Lots of love,

Nuts about Health for Men's Health Month

This month is Men’s Health Month. Who knew?


And so, since it’s a month all about men and their health, let’s focus on nuts…  

Nuts contain unsaturated fats and high levels of Omega-3 essential fatty acids (that your body can't produce by itself) which are very good for heart and artery health because it lowers cholesterol, and nuts are also packed with protein and fiber that keep you satisfied, balance blood sugar levels and can help you stay lean.

Not only that, nuts are a very tasty and a convenient snack to have in between meals.  

Personally I find with my husband, who spends a lot of time on the road during the day for business, that when he has a stressful and busy day healthy eating is really the last thing on his mind and that he would completely skip meals. By the end of the day he is so tired and hungry that he stops at the nearest fast food restaurant right before he comes home. No breakfast, no lunch, and then suddenly this monster load of transfats and carbohydrates right before dinner. Not only does it cause an overload of calories in a short space of time, but his metabolism never kick-starts at the beginning of the day and he feels tired and irritated throughout the whole day. Nothing of that is good, and nutty snacks would be ideal for him to keep on hand.

Men. What can we say? It's our duty to check up on them and feed them.

Did you know that there are science nuts who believe that a handful of nuts on the regular can help improve sperm quality and boost your sex drive. According to an article from TheTelegraph in the U.K., a research team at the University of California published the results of a study which showed that men who consumed 75g of walnuts each day experienced a marked improvement in sperm vitality, motility and morphology.

Since men are generally crazy about sex, why not encourage them to keep their hearts, arteries (for "adequate" blood blow down there...) and testicles healthy by regularly enjoying healthy nutty snacks?



Nuts.com offers an incredible range of awesome healthy snacks that you can order online, most of which are organic and super nutritious. Not only that, they have delicious recipes that you can try out on their High Protein Snacks page and each of their healthy snacks has about 160 calories or less, making it fabulous in-between bites without the guilt.

Oh, and here's another fun fact. You can also buy chia seeds from Nuts.com, and these little guys are packed with Omega-3 fatty acids as well. Another reason why these fatty acids are good for you is the fact hat they aid in maintaining good mental health and can help fight depression. Let's face it, when our men are deppro, so are their sexy feelings, and thus chia seeds and nuts once again help keep them healthy in the boinking department.

Gentlemen, we love you, we love your testicles and we love making love to you, so please take care of yourselves and stay healthy by eating the right stuff and staying active.

Be nuts about health.
