Grab Some Nuts Day
National Grab Some Nuts Day is a holiday that allows us to fully show our love for nuts. Nuts are a delicacy rich in useful microelements and vitamins. Most people don’t eat nuts very often, so a special day is a good excuse to fill that gap.
The history of the holiday is unknown: there is no information about the initiator of the holiday, nor about the date of occurrence. Be that as it may, National Grab Some Nuts Day celebrates enough people who use this day to pay well-deserved honors to their favorite delicacy.
The question remains what exactly is considered nuts. Peanuts are legumes, almonds, walnuts, pine nuts, pistachios, coconuts and cashews are seeds. What then remains? However, holiday lovers prefer not to be embarrassed by such subtleties and understand the word “nuts” as we are all used to.
- The healthiest nuts are hazelnuts, pecans and walnuts.
- Most types of nuts have their own separate holidays.
- Peanut butter first began to be actively used at the end of the 19th century: then it was prescribed for people with bad teeth.
How to celebrate
Enjoy your favorite nuts the way you want. You can just buy a bag of pistachios or salted peanuts, or you can arrange a feast with a lot of nut dishes. From stuffed duck to ice cream, there’s almost no dish you can’t add nuts to, so there’s no limit to your imagination. A handful of nuts in the usual dish will not only bring an interesting flavor nuance, but also allow you to add a lot of benefits to the food.
You can eat nuts either roasted or raw, but remember that they lose a lot of their nutrients during the roasting process.
