National Nutrition Month

3 reasons why you should choose Ferris nuts or trail mixes over that bag of chips you've been contemplating:

Not All Fats Are Bad
You can have your nuts and eat them too! Many believe that nuts are not good for you because they are just too darn satiating. We want to make sure the high-in-fat-therefore-not-good-for-you stigma is set straight. Nuts are high in monounsaturated fats, also known as the good fats that reduce bad cholesterol in the body. According to the American Heart Association, intake of monounsaturated fats can lower risk of stroke or heart disease.


Live a Long Healthy Life
According to a recent study recorded by the Journal of Nutrition, Health and Aging, nut and seed consumption is related to decreasing the biological aging process by approximately 1.5 years.

Dynamic Duo
Dried Fruits and Nuts have compatible nutrients. More and more data is emerging that suggests the pairing could enhance the reduction of cardiometabolic risk factors, improve glycemic control and decrease the risk of developing diabetes and/or cardiovascular disease. (Something that already happens to an extent when eaten independently). Cherries Berries & Nuts, Super Mix, and California Mix are some of our Favorite dried fruit and nut mixes here at Ferris.
