Snack for Satisfaction and Sustenance
A healthy diet does not have to equal sacrifice. While avoiding unhealthy fat, sugar, and carbs, you can still have tasty treats for snacks. Recent research into nut consumption has put to rest the myth that nuts are unhealthy. Instead, studies show nuts lead to lower cholesterol and blood pressure levels.
Walnuts are exceptionally healthy, even when stacked against other nutrition-packed nuts. Lower total cholesterol and LDL cholesterol numbers result from eating walnuts. Additionally, triglycerides and apoprotein B are both decreased. All of these lowered numbers signal improvements in cardiovascular health.
Chronic inflammation leads to heart disease, type II diabetes, cognitive-related diseases, cancer, and other serious illnesses. Walnuts, however, can protect from body inflammation. Walnuts contain antioxidants like polyphenols and Vitamin E that fight against the free radicals in the body that cause inflammation.
Weight gain has always been a concern around nut consumption; however, consuming walnuts helps manage weight. The body consumes fewer calories than contained within the nuts for a net negative caloric result.
The unique nature of walnuts stems from the particular fats contained within them. Walnut fats are monounsaturated and polyunsaturated, and the nuts include Omega 3 fatty acids – alpha-linolenic and linoleic. This nutritional content makes the walnut a superfood with an incredible anti-inflammatory effect.
As you add walnuts to your family’s diet, remember that the overall picture of what you eat matters. One good choice doesn’t make up for fifty bad ones.
