Kirsten and Jessica,

 

Do be careful with the Brazil Nuts.  You can google for the details if you want but Brazil Nuts have the highest amount of selenium in them than any other food.  As a matter of fact they have SO much that believe it or not (I was shocked when I learned of this) you can actually get an overdose of selenium form eating too many Brazil Nuts.  I forget the amount they have but it is exorbanant compared to other foods.  If I'm remembering correctly you really shouldn't eat more than 2 or 3  at a time and not every day to avoid selenium overdose in the body.  If only all vitamins were that compact that you only needed to eat a few bites and satisfy your nutritional needsfor the day lol!
