The UK is being urged to go nuts for the environment by swapping burgers for bags of nuts on Wednesday October 22nd 2014 to celebrate National Nut Day.


October 22nd is well-established as National Nut Day in the USA and the organisers want Britain to ‘go nuts’ in the same way!


We want to focus again on switching to nuts to help the environment.  If we in the UK eat less meat and highly processed veggie foods – our planet will benefit. This will keep a lid on greenhouse gasses and won’t use up our valuable land resources.


For people who already eat plenty of meat and dairy products such as most people in rich countries, nuts and ‘nutty’ legumes – like Brazil nuts, cashews, peanuts and walnuts - are a good nutritional alternative to meat says Dr Donal Murphy-Bokern, independent agri-environmental scientist and author of several studies on food system impacts.  


Wednesday, 22 October marks National Nut Day and everyone at Liberation Foods will be going nutty, spreading the word about the delicious taste and numerous health benefits associated with nuts.

This year’s National Nut Day theme is Putting Nuts Back on the Menu– an invitation to the nation to enjoy a nut filled day on the 22nd October – ideally incorporating nuts into your meal plan.

Over the coming weeks, we’ll be posting a number nutterly delicious celebrity recipes to get you inspired and your taste buds tingling – so check out this site plus Twitter (@Liberation_Nuts) and our Facebook page:

We’ve also teamed up with nutritionist and author, Fiona Kirk ( who will also be sharing some of her top nutty nutritional tips plus a few nutritionally beneficial (and super tasty) recipes along the way.

On the day itself, we want you all to get busy on social media and post the images of you tucking into your nutty feast. A Fairtrade hamper prize will be awarded to the most inspiring recipe and culinary concoction.

Stay tuned – more information to follow…. Together we call ALL put nuts (and Fairtrade) back on the menu for good!
