I spend about 7 hours a day, Monday through Saturday, in front of my laptop doing multiple things such as blogging; creating my e-books; reading news; online researching on how-to do things, tips, and free stuff; or just watching a DVD movie. Many times, I do not have a regular or fixed time for my breakfast, lunch and dinner. My eating time varies every day. Sometimes, I do not eat breakfast when I wake up about 10 a.m.; I just eat my breakfast and lunch at 11:30 a.m. I usually eat my dinner between 7 and 9 p.m.
Before, I am fond of junk food, high-sodium fast food, and processed food. Now, I am very particular about my personal health while spending a lot of time on my computer projects. I do not want to get sick. I eat a balance diet: fruits, vegetables, carbohydrates, green tea and juices from fresh fruits and vegetables.
Lately, I read an article on munching different nuts. According to the article:
1. Almonds are a “source of healthy fat and have plenty of protein, fiber and iron, as well as 8 percent of your daily calcium needs but no cholesterol. Almonds are also great source of vitamin E, which protect against stroke and cancer”.
2. Walnuts are rich in antioxidants which “protect against the cellular damage that contributes to heart disease, cancer and premature aging. Walnuts are rich in manganese and have abundance of polyunsaturated fat, which may protect against type 2 diabetes”.
3. Pecans are a “great source of unsaturated fats which are also beneficial for your heart”.
4. Pistachios are “high in protein and lower in calories than other nuts”.
5. Peanuts are a “rich source of monounsaturated fatty acids, fiber, magnesium, copper, folate and vitamin E, all of which have cardiovascular disease risk-reducing properties”.
In one of my visit at the Costco Warehouse, I was able to find a product called that consist of different nuts as shown in the picture below. Kirkland Wholesome Fruit & Nuts
The contained dried cranberries, dried cherries, almonds, walnuts, and dry-roasted pistachios. One package weighs 30 oz. or 851 grams which cost me $9.50 plus 8.1% sales tax (or a total of $10.27). Kirkland Wholesome Fruit & Nuts
The back of the package shows the Nutrition Facts. One serving is equal to 3 tablespoons of nuts weighing about 30 grams. Each serving will give your body the following nutrients:
Calories – 150 (calories from fat – 70)
Total fat – 8 grams (12%)
Saturated fat – 1 gram (5%)
Cholesterol – 0 gram (0%)
Sodium – 0 mg (0%)
Total carbohydrate – 15 grams (5%)
Dietary fiber – 2 grams (8%)
Sugars – 11 grams
Protein – 4 grams
Vitamin A – 4%
Calcium – 4%
Iron – 4%
In addition to the , I buy some Kirkland Wholesome Fruit & Nuts raw peanuts from the grocery store and boil them at home as the picture shows below.
I usually eat one cup of nuts in mid-morning and another cup of nuts in the late afternoon. I have the nuts beside my computer, pick up and eat 2 or 4 pieces every time I pause from my work.
I suggest that you do the same, except if you have allergy on some nuts. What do you think about my nut eating?
