Going Nuts

ju·di·cious
(j -d sh s)
adj.
Having or exhibiting sound judgment; prudent.


Tired of eating in moderation? As a dietitian, I am getting tired of saying this word. Maybe a new word is needed. I found a dietary recommendation which indicated to include judicious use of nuts, such as walnuts, almonds, macadamias, pecans, pistachios. The recommendation went on to explain why: walnuts contain the plant version of omega-3 fatty acids. Almonds are a good source of Vit. E. Nuts contain many helpful minerals and plant fibers to help with heart health but the amount they described as “judicious” was not defined in the statement. I find this is how good intentions often lead to bad results. Portions need to be clarified. It is easy to go nuts over nuts as it is hard to be judicious when food is delicious.

The major health recommendations recommend we include 4 oz. of nuts and seeds in our diets per week. An ounce of nuts is about ¼ cup. This web page has other helpful hints for portioning nuts.

  6. Mellowed by this profound knowledge of letting go, middle-aged love is less arrogant,more abject and more philosophical. Unlike in the first flush of youth when love is at the very first sight and its demise is at the very first slight, love, if it at all happens at this age, is rather with a philosophical construct, than with a person.
