Omega-3 fatty acids are a protective fat that the body does not manufacture.

Omega-3s have to be obtained from food sources. In light of this, walnuts and Omega-3s make a perfect combo. Why?

A growing body of evidence suggests that omega-3 essential fatty acids are crucial to human health. These healthful fats provide protection from a host of health problems including high cholesterol and high blood pressure, stroke, rheumatoid arthritis . . . Read more about Walnuts and Omega-3s

I have a tough time making myself eat walnuts. I think their a bit bitter. However, over the years my tastes have changes.

I believe walnuts are great, especially for expecting mothers. The reason I say that they have such good nutrients that the baby is going to be strong and healthy. In addition, they have some influence for brain development. This is from my own life observation and personal experience. If anyone is allergic to nuts then have to be careful not to consume any of these.

Thank you,
Zuzanna

Nuts, nutrition research has revealed, are an important part of our diet, offering the right type of fats that protect heart and brain health. Much of the illness we experience in the West is diet-related. Eating habits have changed over the years and people are paying the piper with disease emergence and concurrent health challenges.

Lauren, bitterness can be related to walnuts not being fresh. I've eaten fresh walnuts that were wonderful and almost sweet. I've also eaten walnuts out of the package that were bitter, or, of all things, rather hot.

Walnuts have been a nutritous treat in our family for many years. I have also noticed the difference in taste between the fresh and stale walnuts. My father likes to feed the squirrels with the left over Christmas walnuts that have went stale.

@Thiruvelan thanks for visiting this article on my Chris Stonecipher and Friends blog. What you read is a snippet from Athlyn's article. As Lauren said, the link to the article is just below the introduction. This was done to conserve room on the blog because it is a lengthy post. Thanks again:)
