Quick and Easy Food and Wine Guides

You guys, I just started using pinterest and now I have a new thing that wastes several hours a day if I let it.  I thought it was just for girls who shop all the time and need a place to remember all of the things they want to someday buy.  It turns out there is a lot of useful information out there.  I stumbled upon this infographic on different types of nuts and a whole new world was opened up to me.  If you need a quick reference guide to nuts, wine, or grains, this is the post you should bookmark.
This one is particularly useful because the serving size always says "1 ounce" and I'm like, "Ok, I'll just take out the food scale I keep in my purse at all times."

I really wish I had this next one while I was in Italy.  If I had, I would have known to try the Soave!
If you know what you like wine to taste like, but you don't know anything about the wines themselves, this is for you!

We all know that whole grains are better than processed/white grains, but (similar to the nut guide), this chart will introduce you to several grains you might not be using and tell you the nutritional benefits of each.  This one is kind of inspired by the recent information that as people have been buying more and more quinoa in the U.S., quinoa prices and farming have gotten out of control in South America.  Even if you're not vegan or gluten free, it's always a good idea to vary your diet -- both for environmental reasons and health reasons.  So here are some other options you might want to try...

This has nothing to do with any of that, but the Best Use of Pinterest goes to this hilarious pin board:
