Eat More Walnuts – The Nut with Omega 3s and Good Fats

Eat More Walnuts

Learn what makes walnuts a superfood from nutrition coach Lisa Neilsen in this Howcast video.

Walnuts are the next superfood. They’re the healthiest nut because they’re very high in omega-3s. And omega-3s are the good fats that are going to prevent you from getting heart disease. Recent studies have shown by eating a handful of nuts daily, you can reduce your chances of getting cardiovascular disease anywhere from 15 percent to 50 percent. I personally have found lots of ways to incorporate nuts into my diet. I may have them as a snack. I may grind them in a smoothie. Or one of the things I’ve done recently is I add them into my sautéed dishes, and they give a wonderful nutty flavor to the foods I’m preparing. So if you are looking for ways to reduce your risk of cardiovascular disease, go ahead and enjoy your nuts.
