Wonderful research showing that if you only look at those who are deficient in the things which walnuts contain, eating additional walnuts can help. No actual test cases, just looked at the nutrients. It was no surprise to find this was funded by the Californian Walnut Commission.

Walnuts are tasty and nutritious, but have a lot of fats, good fats, but still fats. A 1 ounce serving has 190 calories composed of 20g of fat and nearly 6g of protein. Moderation is needed when consuming calorie dense foods.

I eat walnuts every morning as I have found them to be the easiest of the nut varieties to purchase in bulk and to consume. I try to limit my intake to around 20g. I have convinced myself that I’ve seen a positive impact in the way I feel since I started eating them daily some months ago. I don’t know if they’re having a huge impact upon my health or not, but I’ll continue to eat them as I enjoy their added crunch and texture in my morning oatmeal.

I tend to stick with raw almonds. They keep and they are a good snack.

Im in the same boat! Was wondering recently if walnuts may be really quite a bang for the buck… considering i can eat a handful of them and feel quite satisfied for a good amount of time. Combine some w yogurt and a banana and go for the whole morning feeling great

While big walnut does appear to have written this, nuts/seeds do in fact rock. Lots of healthy fats, good amount of protein, good amount of fiber, vitamins and minerals, and possibly some polyphenols. The biggest issue for some people will be the amount of calories or fats, otherwise nuts/seeds are awesome. Kind of like the sibling to fruits and veggies which doesn't get as much attention.

I can only assume the way this headline was written that it doesn't do anything for babies?

Where is my walnut milk?

You can make it, and it isn’t bad, but the tannins aren’t particularly pleasant. I love tannins in tea and wine, but not so much in a milky form. You can leech some of the tannins out soaking in water, just depends on how much work you want to make it.
