There are a lot of nuts out there these days, but none as enjoyably edible as Walnuts. Theyre used in more cooked foods than perhaps any other nut in the world, making an excellent addition to salads, casseroles, desserts, breakfast foods, and more, and are just as good eaten raw, roasted, or toasted. Aside from their culinary popularity, Walnuts are an excellent source of nutrition, providing healthy fatty acids. Just like their nutty cousins, theyre also a good source of protein. Adding NOW Real Food Walnuts to your diet is a tasty and nutritious way to improve your health and well-being without going nuts. Supportive but not conclusive research shows that eating 1.5 ounces per day of walnuts, as part of a low saturated fat and low cholesterol diet and not resulting in increased caloric intake, may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease.
