I don't eat a lot of meat. I'm always combining grains and legumes because their combination gives you the protein your body needs.

As the next exchange is coming up and my scant experience of U.S. nuts is limited to Beer Nuts and Planter's Cocktail Peanuts, I need to know what other roasted, salted, expertly packed American nuts are worth trading for?
