How do you eat peanuts!

September 5, 2008 5:49am CST
I like and love to eat peanuts of course without the cover. The one cooked thru oil and putting in some salts. When I am eating it alone, I ate the little ones and the big ones later. I like to taste and savor its taste. Of course it is food for the brain but not so good for arthritis and rheumatism. But when I am eating it with the group I started eating the big seeds as everyboy is doing the same. The small seeds/nuts are eaten last. But again I must say when I eat it alone I start eating the smaller ones. How about you or you just dont care whether it is the big or the small seeds.

I love peanuts. I do not have any partical style to eat peanuts according to their sizes. I just eat it which comes first in my hand. Check out the facts about peanuts: Peanuts contain significant amount of plant compound resveratrol that may prevent risk of heart disease and cancer.A peanut butter sandwich or a snack of peanuts are an easy tasty way to incorporate more folic acid into the diet. For example a one ounce serving of peanuts delivers as much as 17.5% of the Recommended Daily Intake (RDI) of folic acid. When spread on enriched bread, peanut butter delivers even more folic acid.Eating enough of the B vitamin, folic acid, in the first weeks of pregnancy can prevent certain disabling birth defects. Additionally, studies show that folic acid consumption may aid in decreasing incidence of stroke and heart attacks among the elderly.Eating enough folic acid can cut by up to 50 percent a woman's risk of having a baby with a neural tube defect in which the brain and spinal cord form improperly. In addition to peanuts and peanut butter other sources of folic acid are enriched bread and grains, citrus fruits and dark leafy vegetables. Peanuts have a low Glycemic Index, which makes them an appropriate food for diabetic diets.Blood sugar levels can regulate appetites, energy, moods and control the way food is turned into fat or fuel.
