Walnuts

imagesWhat is it with me and Walnuts lately?  I can’t seem to get enough of them.  I even caught myself dipping them in almond, hazelnut butter, which turned out to be a pretty good combination.

Walnuts just happen to be full of EFA’s (essential fatty acids, essential because our bodies cannot make them, we have to get them from the food we eat).  Walnut’s also  contain more Omega 3 than any other nut!  EFA’s are extremely important for many systems, functions and organs in the body, your brain being one of them.  Coincidentally walnuts look very similar to your brain, they even come protected in a hard shell.

Walnuts are one of those foods that offer substantially more than what their appearance  suggests.  100g Walnuts = 15.2 g protein. 13.7 carbohydrates. 65.2 g fat. 6.7 g fibre.  Along with an assortment of vitamins and minerals.

The Black Walnut, of North American origin, is know quite well for its antiparasitic qualities.

What I find even more interesting is it’s use in the Bach Flower Remedies.  It is really fascinating how certain influences can affect even your food choices.  Your body & mind definitely communicate on an intimate level.  This is something to be aware of on a regular basis.

Make sure to get Organic & as Fresh as possible.
