Nuts about Nuts

Hi friends,
I'm not feeling so well today, not sure what happened but I've been coughing up yucky stuff for the past 2 days. The rest of me feels fine, actually great, but all the coughing has really took a toll on my throat, it's super sore. I've been snacking on my homemade cough drops and generously smearing my herbal vapor rub all over my chest. We take off for New Orleans on Wednesday, I'm praying I'm back to my normal spunky self by then.
 
This weeks nutrition challenge was to eat at least one serving of nuts everyday this week. Of course I have to share some nut facts with you guys because that's what I love to do.
 
Enjoy
