This Saturday is National Nut Day, a food holiday that celebrates the nut and all of its benefits. Nearly one out of every 10 people eats nuts, or a nut product, at least once a day. Almonds, walnuts and pecans are the top three nuts consumed in the United States and the production of these nuts have more than doubled in the last decade. Some of the health benefits nuts provide include weight loss, heart friendly fats, disease prevention and the mineral folate which can help with brain development. Read and share the infographic below for more fun facts about nuts.
October is National Apple Month. Originally founded in 1904 as National Apple Week, it was expanded to the entire month of October.
