Did you know that peanuts are legumes, not actually nuts?

Whether boiled, roasted, ground or salted, peanuts have become a familiar snack. But these crunchy treats are not actually nuts, theyÔÇÖre legumes, and they pack more healing benefits than one might realize.

Braised peanuts in #claypot┬ásimmered clay infused rich sauce, meat sauce or coconut curry, or any leftover sauce! 30 minutes only! Rich and Full of flavor! It's good for you! Yum! ­čśő

Peanuts are an excellent source of resveratrol, another polyphenolic antioxidant. Resveratrol has been found to have a protective function against cancers, heart disease, degenerative nerve disease, Alzheimer's disease, and viral/fungal infections.

Recent research studies suggest that roasting/boiling enhances antioxidant bioavailability in the peanuts. It has been found that boiled peanuts have two and four-fold increase in isoflavone antioxidants biochanin-A and genistein content, respectively. (Journal of agricultural and food chemistry).

The nuts are packed with many important B-complex groups of vitamins such as riboflavin, niacin, thiamin, pantothenic acid, vitamin B-6, and folates. 100 g of peanuts provide about 85% of RDI of niacin, which contributes to health and blood flow to the brain.

You may directly add peanuts in your stew! ItÔÇÖs so delicious and nutritious!
Today I eat this with my mung beans quinoa cornmeal porridge. ItÔÇÖs a light meal and all I wanted! So you may save some room for weekend parties, lol. ­čśŁ
Note: get only good quality or organic / fresh peanuts with minimally processed, avoid any that are moldy, shriveled, or discolored. Use with caution if you or family member is peanut allergic.
