The article also mentioned another unique quality regarding walnuts, which is that they are typically eaten raw, without roasting. Other nuts are often roasted, therefore the quality of their antioxidants decrease.
So what are some ways you can start enjoying more walnuts?
- Add them to your oatmeal, cereal or pancakes in the morning.
- Make walnut butter!
- Add that walnut butter to just about anything; rice cakes, sandwiches, crackers, mix it with squash and yogurt (haha, random!).....
.... add it to oatmeal with cooked sweet potato.
- Throw some walnuts on top of quick breads or add them to any type of muffin (before baking).
- Or, just eat them by the handful!
