Nut butters are more than just delicious. Studies show that consuming nuts regularly may reduce your risk of cardiovascular disease and protect against certain cancers, type 2 diabetes, and other chronic diseases. Despite the fact that nuts and seeds contain a higher fat and calorie content, research indicates that consuming nuts does not lead to weight gain. Including about an ounce of nuts and seeds in your diet per day can have significant health benefits, especially when the serving of nuts replaces the calories from elsewhere in the meal, such as a piece of bread. Because of their rich flavors, only a small amount of nut butter is needed to add “wow” to wide range of recipes. Read More→Print This Post

This dramatically colorful dish is flavored with a variety of seasonings for a taste of the tropics. A splash of fresh lime juice when ready to serve to brighten the flavors even more. If you prefer extra heat, add a minced hot jalapeño or Serrano chile in addition to or instead of the cayenne. Cooked brown rice may be used instead of the cooked quinoa. Pineapple can be substituted for the mango. From Quick-Fix Vegan by Robin Robertson © 2011, Andrews McMeel. Photo by Lori Maffei. Read More→Print This Post
