Do you eat nuts? And if you do, how often do you eat nuts? I didn't eat nuts a lot when I was younger.
Especially as a boy, I thought nuts were yucky.
I thought they were bland and no taste.
They were sort of, um, woody.
But as I grew older I grew to appreciate the fine flavor of nuts.
Now, I have nuts every day.
I have nuts in my Muesli.
Um, I buy the nuts and I make my own Muesli.
I think that, that way I can avoid, uh, extra additives that the companies put into the products before they sell them anyway.
I get almonds and walnuts and I, I think I might get a few other nuts too.
There's lots of kinds of nuts.
One of the nuts that's not actually a nut is the peanut.
It sounds strange.
It's called a Peanut.
So, you think it's a nut? But the scientists say they're actually not nuts.
They're different from nuts for one thing, they grow underground.
I don't know much more about that.
I haven't really studied it because I don't want to make this podcast too difficult.
But be careful when you're eating nuts.
How about pine nuts? They're full of oil.
That's one thing that nuts have a lot of that's good for us.
I was reading about Walnuts because I have a medical condition and it said that the Walnuts have a kind of fatty acid, uh, oil that's really good for us.
And we should eat lots of it.
You can also get it in salmon.
I also like to have, uh, what's the one almonds? Almonds are really good for calcium.
It, it said, and since I don't drink very much milk, I want to get as much calcium as I can.
So I enjoy eating almonds.
I really like chocolate covered out almonds.
How about you? Do you get chocolate covered nuts from time to time? Do you eat nuts on a daily basis? You know, they make a great snack in between meals.
That's all for nuts for today."
