Sam Lewandowski RD’s Nutrition News Roundup – Week of 5/11

Good News for Nut Lovers

 

While we’ve known that the unsaturated fats found in nuts benefits heart health, this new research indicates that consuming two handfuls of tree nuts can help in lowering cholesterol. The findings show the addition of two servings of nuts was particularly helpful for those eating a typical Western diet. The study cites two servings (2.4 ounces) as the amount shown to reduce cholesterol and triglycerides. See our tips here.

A Progressive Move in Baltimore

 

As a native, I found this to be exciting news for my home city. It’s encouraging to see the city move into action by promoting health and nutrition in such fundamental and critical ways. Obviously it will take time to see results, but these initiatives can spark positive changes for communities and individuals across the region. More power to our new food “czar!”

Share the joy
