I am a huge fan of nuts and seeds. Whether cracked from the shell, tossed into a salad or poured from a bag into a sweet or savory dish, nuts are a great food for on-the-go lifestyles. Nuts and seeds are powerhouses of both nutrition and taste. Packed safely in their own natural shells, nuts and seeds are nutrient-rich because they contain everything that a new plant needs to grow: energy, protein, vitamins, minerals, and 'good' fats, such as heart-healthy omega-3 and monounsaturated fatty acids. From the dietitians and nutrition educators out in Montana (www.eatrightmontana.org), here are five great suggestions to add nuts and seeds to your diet.
