4 Great Reasons Sliced Tiger Nuts Are a Nutritional Knock-Out Over Almonds

Move over almonds, there’s a new superfood in town. It’s sliced Tiger Nuts. If you haven’t heard of this nutritional powerhouse, it’s actually a tiny tuber or root vegetable that’s grown in Mediterranean soil. What it produces is a high energy, organic, and gluten free food that is healthy and unique. Adding it to your lifestyle can make Sliced Tiger Nuts a nutritional knock-out over almonds. Let’s look at the ways Sliced Tiger Nuts are far superior to regular old almonds. Tiger Nuts dominate almonds in any food battle!

Tiger Nuts Have Less Fat

In looking at the fat comparison of almonds versus Tiger Nuts, the tiny tubers come out on top with less fat per serving. In a serving of almonds there is a whopping 57 grams of fat. For Tiger Nuts, it’s only 25 grams of fat. Keep in mind that’s a full cup of almonds (100 grams) or sliced Tiger Nuts. You would eat about a ¼ cup for a snack or added to a meal. So for fat content in Tiger Nuts would only be about 6 grams of fat per actual real-life serving

There Are Fewer Calories in Tigernuts

There are also fewer calories in Tiger Nuts as compared to almonds. In a full cup, it’s 615 calories for almonds, while it’s only 482 calories for Tiger Nuts. That’s a big difference. When you are trying to cut calories where you can, to lose weight and maintain your health, those almond calories are going to add up faster.

How About Fiber?

Fiber is an important part of a healthy digestive tract. An adult needs around 25-30 grams of fiber per day. Sometimes that number can be hard to hit each day. Sliced Tiger Nuts will help you get there faster, with 11.2 % of your daily value of fiber per serving, against 8 % with almonds.

The takeaway here is that Tiger Nuts wins again by a long shot.

More Natural Sugar Content

If you are trying to live a more sugar-free lifestyle or going paleo for the first time, Tiger Nuts are a great way to help you stay satisfied and full. They contain only natural sugars so you don’t have to worry about added artificial sugars.

Not only are the Sliced Tiger Nuts great for meals and snacks, you can also use a Tiger Nut Oil in cooking and baking.

For meals, add Sliced Tiger Nuts to your oatmeal and Greek style yogurt in the morning. For lunch you can top salads or soups with Sliced Tiger Nuts for a nutritional boost, and the same goes for dinner. Or switch it up with some Chopped Tiger Nuts. You’ll love all the Tiger Nut options you can eat each day. These raw premium, organic Tiger Nuts that will make you forget all about eating almonds.

Amazing Golden Cakes using Tiger Nuts Flour!

One of our terrific customers, sent us this picture of the Golden Cakes that she makes using our Premium Organic Tiger Nuts Flour, and you must agree, they do look good!

Here's with what she says about them:

I make them with equal portions of brown rice flour and chufa flour, honey, fresh ginger, lemon, and local butter. With the moistness of the honey, using all chufa made it too dense, so the brown rice flour balances it out to make a moist, tasty, and coincidentally gluten free delight! The ones with red have a carnelian compote in them, and the ones with the bit of date on top have a fig/date/citron Ambrosia of Thoth in them.

Subject: Stanford University Notes on Coronavirus

As you know, we are "Serious about Healthy", so we thought that we would share what we think is a terrific article from Stanford University:

The new Coronavirus may not show sign of infection for many days. How can you know if you are infected?  By the time you have fever and/or cough and go to the hospital, the lung is usually 50% fibrosis. 

Taiwan experts provide a simple self-check that we can do every morning:  Take a deep breath and hold it for more than 10 seconds. If you do this successfully without coughing, without discomfort, stiffness or tightness, there is no fibrosis in the lungs; it basically indicates no infection. In critical times, please self-check every morning in an environment with clean air.

Serious excellent advice by Japanese doctors treating COVID-19 cases: Everyone should ensure your mouth & throat are moist, never dry. Take a few sips of water every 15 minutes at least. Why?  Even if the virus gets into your mouth, drinking water or other liquids will wash them down through your throat and into the stomach. Once there, your stomach acid will kill all the virus. If you don't drink enough water regularly, the virus can enter your windpipe and then the lungs. That's very dangerous.

Take care everyone and may the world recover from this Coronavirus soon.

1. If you have a runny nose and sputum, you have a common cold.

2. Coronavirus pneumonia is a dry cough with no runny nose.

3. This new virus is not heat-resistant and will be killed by a temperature of just 26/27 degrees C.  (About 77 degrees F.)  It hates the Sun.

4. If someone sneezes with it, it goes about 10 feet before it drops to the ground and is no longer airborne.

5. If it drops on a metal surface it will live for at least 12 hours - so if you come into contact with any metal surface, wash your hands as soon as you can with a bacterial soap.

6. On fabric it can survive for 6-12 hours. normal laundry detergent will kill it.

7. Drinking warm water is effective for all viruses. Try not to drink liquids with ice.

8. Wash your hands frequently as the virus can only live on your hands for 5-10 minutes, but - a lot can happen during that time - you can rub your eyes, pick your nose unwittingly and so on.

9. You should also gargle as a prevention. A simple solution of salt in warm water will suffice.

10. Can't emphasis enough - drink plenty of water!

THE SYMPTOMS:

1. It will first infect the throat, so you'll have a sore throat lasting 3/4 days</span>

2. The virus then blends into a nasal fluid that enters the trachea and then the lungs,causing pneumonia. This takes about 5/6 days further.

3. With the pneumonia comes high fever and difficulty in breathing.

4. The nasal congestion is not like the normal kind. You feel like you're drowning. It's imperative you then seek immediate attention.
