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!
Leaving you with some pics! Enjoy!
