Weight management can be complex in a world full of sweet and savory treats, but walnuts can be a helpful, healthy eating tool. They’re rich in protein, fiber, and healthy fats.

The benefits to the brain from eating walnuts come from the antioxidants and anti-inflammatory phytochemicals within them. These elements prevent damage from aging. Avoiding cognitive decline during aging is another advantage to slipping walnuts into as many recipes as possible.

Reducing inflammation by eating healthy foods can reduce the risk of developing cancer, and walnuts are known to help reduce inflammation.

Remember to Ask about Allergies

Nut allergies are common. We suggest avoiding any tree nuts if a guest has an allergy because of the risk of cross-contamination during preparation. If you plan to include walnuts in a recipe for guests, make sure to ask about allergies before finalizing the menu.

Storing Your Walnuts

Keep your walnuts in peak freshness for as long as possible. When you plan to use them should dictate whether you keep them in the fridge or freezer. In an airtight container, store them cold, but keep them away from strong odors in your fridge.
