Nuts actually are getting renewed attention as a part of a healthy diet, in particular the Mediterranean hearty-healthy diet.

I love peanut butter. I was just thinking I wanted a peanut-butter-and-bacon sandwich today, but I don't have any bacon. (And I said that to a complete stranger.)

Peanuts aren't nuts. They're legumes.
