SPONSORED: 5 reasons you should include walnuts in your diet

Everyone is looking for food options that provide nutrients to keep our bodies healthy, and walnuts are a great option.

SPONSORED: 5 reasons you should include walnuts in your diet
Whilst you're probably familiar with walnuts and have snacked on them before, did you know...

1. They're nutrition powerhouses

Walnuts are a good source of folate, vitamin B6 and copper, plus they contain iron and zinc – all of which contribute to overall health and wellbeing.

2. They're not like other nuts

Walnuts are the only tree nut to contain a significant amount of the plant-based essential omega-3, alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) (2.7g/ 30g) and a handful (about 30g) provides 4.4g of protein and 1.4g of fibre.

3. They taste great as they are

Whether you need a snack after you exercise, or whilst working from home, you can always munch on walnuts as they are. They're great raw owing to their creamy yet crunchy texture, but toasting them also brings out the flavour.

4. But they're also great additions to your favourite recipe

Why not get creative by adding California Walnuts to sweet and savoury recipes? You can sprinkle them atop your breakfast bowl, add them to dinner recipes like stews, or even use them in baked creations like lemon loaf or banana bread.

To enjoy walnuts at their best, store them in the fridge for up to 6 months, or the freezer for 12.
