Superfoods: Walnuts

ABM_1400339534
A little bit of history:

The ornamental walnut tree has been cultivated for centuries and available in many varieties from English (Persian) walnut, black and white walnut; the English walnut actually originated in India and countries near the Caspian Sea.

Benefits:

An excellent source of omega-3 essential fatty acids, walnuts benefit cardiovascular protection and have anti-inflammatory effects, aiding skin diseases such as eczema and psoriasis. Their content of copper and manganese aid in the production of antioxidants, helping to protect cells from free radical damage.

Tips:

  • Purchase whole walnuts that feel heavy in their shell and ensure the shell has not been cracked or stained, which are signs of hidden mould.
  • Add texture to your desserts by sprinkling crushed walnuts over ice cream and drizzling with honey.
  • Toss your walnuts into a freshly, grated raw carrot salad and add a dessert spoon of chopped raisins.
  • Eat a small handful of walnuts as a healthy, energizing snack, which will keep you away from sugary foods.
