Peanuts-A story of how I re-discovered Peanuts!

A couple of years ago I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism. Apart from coping with its side effects – I reduced in take of some food items like peanuts, which are known to increase the condition.

Then early last year, I consulted a dietitian and she said that I should not completely avoid them and should eat them for their health benefits too. Restricted eating vs no eating should be followed.

What she said made sense to me, so I kind of increased that small dose of peanuts – few nuts in poha, vermicelli, sabutdana khichdi, chikki. After being away from them for a year or so, I really enjoyed adding them again to my diet.

I used to love eating salted/ roasted/ masala peanuts with my drinks – I drink very occasionally like once in couple of months, so having them again is a blessing and have improved my occasional foray into crazy evenings.

This winter I visited my mom’s house and I brought back a bag

full of sand roasted peanuts while still in their shells. And a neighbor also gave me a big bowl

full of raw variety again in their shells. I had the best of both worlds this winter.

Even V ended up saying that eating these sand roasted peanuts is the true

essence of north Indian winters and he is thankful to me for bringing home that!
