Walnut's high omega 3 content makes it especially attractive for brain function.
Blended is BestWalnuts are easier to digest when blended, particularly for those who struggle to process nuts. Spread some of this creamy, nutty goodness on fresh baked bread for a satisfying snack. If digestion is strong, blend partially to leave some nice crunchy texture variation and a rustic feel. Make sure to bake the walnuts before blending. This will help denaturalise the tannic acids which can irritate a sensitive stomach.
Warm UpSpice things up by adding ground cinnamon, cloves and coriander. This combination strengthens digestion and balances the heaviness of the walnuts due to their light, clearing and stimulating nature.
