Gardening for Food:Nuts (6 entries)

/ : food : nuts

  • This site claims that eating nuts 5 times a week cuts heart attack risks in half. It's easy to do with a little help from their gourmet recipe file (Mmmm... Apricot-almond tea bread!) and surprising news (to us at least) that almonds actually lower levels of LDL cholesterol (the bad kind) while preserving HDL cholesterol levels (the good kind). If you're a grower or foodservice professional the Almond Board can help you out too they provide links, tradeshow information, newsletters, growing tips and calendars, and a list of almond suppliers.   [Google cache]

Site includes FAQs about nut trees, links to research papers, articles, abstracts and organizations, nut recipes, nut-related organizations, and a library.   [Google cache]
