History of National Nut Day

National Nut Day was created by Liberation Foods Company as a way to do the right thing by the collectives of small nut farmers around the world. It was important to the company to stress to the public that their nuts were not only sustainably-grown, but that the company was committed to giving their nut farmers  a fair minimum wage for their labor and their crops. Farmers growing Brazil nuts, peanuts and cashews  from Malawi, Brazil, India, El Salvador and other Third World countries came together to form a Fair Trade collective under Liberation Foods’ umbrella.

National Nut Day appeared in 2015 on Liberation Foods website.  Although the company is based in the United Kingdom, this holiday has spread far and wide, especially in the United States. The day is devoted to all things nuts-related including recipes and cooking tips. Many African countries infuse their daily meals with peanuts on a regular basis in stews and soups.

Eventually, the English sailed the Mediterranean with walnuts onboard ships. The nuts were used for trading. By the 18th century, walnuts arrived in the New World, specifically, California, when the Franciscan monks set foot on these new shores.

National Nut Day Activities

Make your favorite nut butter

Store bought nut butter is so 2000 and late. Grab your favorite nut, toss them in a food processor, and add some sweetener (if desired) and voila! Grab a knife to spread the goodness, or eat it by the spoonful.

Leave your coworkers a nutty treat

Want to brighten up someone’s day at work? Buy a family-size container of mixed nuts at your local market and make snack-sized goodie bags for your coworkers. It’s an inexpensive treat many will go nuts for. (Just make sure no one has peanut allergies!)

Add them to your meal

Try grabbing a handful of your favorite nut and adding them to your breakfast oatmeal, lunch chicken salad, or that veggie stir-fry you’re making for dinner. The added protein will make your stomach (and muscles) happy.

Why We Love National Nut Day

Nuts come in different shapes and sizes

No matter what your preference is, there’s a vast variety of these delicious snacks to suit your taste buds. Nuts also come in all shapes and sizes, from teardrop-shaped almonds to the wrinkly walnuts. Taste your choice!

Nuts are delicious and nutritious

They are creamy and dreamy when consumed and they also deliver a punch of nutrition. Almonds are rich in protein, calcium and vitamin E, while all nuts provide large amounts of healthy monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats. That’s so much good stuff for your body!

Nuts make the perfect snack

We all get hungry, but it’s always easy to make time for a full meal. What do we do in situations like these? NUTS TO THE RESCUE! We can grab a handful of nuts for a guiltless snack that keeps our tummies happy in the short-term.
