I feel like a mice nibbling a piece of something when I am watching films or TV. Peanut is actually my favorite snack, if it’s the right term to use it. I used to hear my grandparents would say “eat peanuts, they’re good for the brain”. And they would never explain why, I dared not ask anyway. I’ve never liked chips and the likes just because they’re junks but I know there are many who are feeling peckish for such foods and having good health at the same time. With peanuts, I can eat it everywhere and anytime I want as long as I am not so hungry. When I was in college, I would always have a pack in my bag and take one or two to nibble on in the class. Nobody would notice that I have something in my mouth, ha ha!
Although some of my friends don’t eat much peanut because they’re afraid to get pimples, I am however, not affected by this conclusion. I haven’t suffered from this kind of skin disorder by eating peanuts, thank God, and the fact that I have oily skin. The healthful type of fat in peanut has been implicated for skin health. Others are just sensitive to food oils that they tend to get pimples or acne from peanuts. To justify my grandparents statement through a little research, peanuts are a good source of niacin, the organic compound that contributes to brain health, brain circulation and blood flow. With this info, I can now tell my grandparents that they’re right about peanuts.
But do you know that peanuts can be fatal to people who are having severe allergic reactions? The first time I heard about somebody died of peanut-allergy I thought it was ridiculous, I never heard anyone allergic to it before. It was when a girl had just eaten some peanuts, happened to kiss his peanut-allergic boyfriend. The boyfriend died in just a matter of minutes. From that time on, memos circulated in schools to ban all kinds of nuts in all food preparations. But me…..I’m enjoying my peanut obsession.
