Walnuts are a delicious way to add extra nutrients to your day! ✨ You could add them instead of croutons to your soups or salads for some extra crunch or even just toss them into a stir fry for satiety. 💛
Here is a delicious, nourishing and simple way that I like to incorporate walnuts and Ceylon Cinnamon into my day...
Enjoy as an afternoon snack or even as a nourishing topping for your porridge!
Did you know that walnuts are a rich source of monounsaturated fats and a source of omega-3s in the form of Alpha Linolenic Acid. They provide Vitamin E in the form of gamma tocopherol. Studies on the heart health of men have shown gamma tocopherol to provide significant protection for heart-related conditions.
Tips for selecting and storing walnuts...
🌟 I recommend buying organically grown whole walnuts whenever possible.
🌟 Choose walnuts which are heavy for their size.
🌟 Avoid if the shells are cracked, pierced or stained since this can indicate that mould may be developing on the nuts.
🌟 If you buy shelled nuts, transfer them to an airtight container and store in the fridge or freezer so that they retain their distinct flavour and nutrient density.
🌟 Unshelled nuts can be stored in a cool, dark, dry place where they will keep fresh for up to six months.
