Oh Nuts

Make a mix of nuts....
then add on top of your muffins before baking.
So many different nuts to choose from. How do you decide? Nuts have between 12-29 percent protein. Ok, we like that! This protein is incomplete ,so its best to mix nuts up with grains or legumes for a better quality protein value. Ok, we can do that!
Most nuts are high in fat having a high percentage of oil.

They are a great
source of calcium,phosphorous, and potassium.
Keep a bag of mixed nuts in your car for when a hunger attack hits..better than stopping for something not so good for you! Yes, we do that already!

They can be chopped, ground, mixed into salads, muffins, sauteed with vegetables or topped on just about anything. Thats right. Anything! They come shelled, raw, roasted, seasoned, salted or spiced. There is no possible way to go into all the types of nuts out there. But, if there is one thing we want to leave you with is this.
Nuts are one of the most versatile foods out there, and there are no rules to where you can add them!

Reaching out to someone....

When was the last time you brought muffins to someone who needed a pick-me-up? When was the last time you called a friend you know you have not seen or heard from in a while? When was the last time you helped a stranger or held an open a door for an individual you didn't even know? Acts of kindness are all around us just waiting to happen. So what if you cannot bake. Buy the muffins or cookies and bring them to that someone you know could use a friendly visit.

Doing acts of kindesss for no reason at all can make you feel good. Its a way for us to connect with another individual, sometimes that we may not even know. Its a way to bring light into their day. Doing something nice for someone else is not only a spirit lifter for the other person, but for you as well. What are you waiting for ? Turn your oven on and bake someone something. Then reach out and share some cookies with that act of kindness.
