Get energized at Grand Central
Noshing on peanuts can give you the fuel you need to conquer your to-dos. “Peanuts have more than 30 nutrients and phytonutrients and are packed with more energy-boosting protein than any nut,” says Raffaela Marie Fenn, president and managing director of the National Peanut Board. To get you fired up about this supernut, American peanut farmers will be at Grand Central Terminal today and tomorrow, doling out peanut samples and explaining peanuts’ health benefits as part of the “Energize Your World” campaign. While there, you can enter to win prizes like a 2012 Ford Focus and a trip to Six Flags.
