Day 245: Brazil Nuts Cause Brain Glitch--!
Friday, September 02, 2011
Well, no, they probably don't. In yesterday's blog I wrote that one Brazil nut has something like 5 or 6 calories. It didn't look right to me at the time - what I thought (of course) is 'Gee, that's not so bad, especially since it's healthier than candy corn or something.'
Ever go to the USDA Nutrients List? If you haven't, here's the link:
One, count 'em, ONE Brazil nut = 33 calories, according to the USDA. I'll take their word for it.
Since I limit my snacks to less than 200 calories (and aim for 150 as an average) even a few BNs will take me sooo far over any healthy limit. Still probably better than candy corn, but even so, I think I'll pass 'em by. If I don't bring them home, I won't be tempted, and if they're not around, I won't miss 'em.
And that's The State of KaseyCoff this AM. L8R!
