The Benefits of Walnuts

eSutras Walnut Halves Walnuts are not only delicious, they also considered a Superfood packing a nutritional punch. Check out some of the health benefits of walnuts.

Cancer-Fighting Properties

The antioxidants and phytosterols found in whole walnuts can help reduce the risk of cancer. In a study using mice, those that consumed walnuts had slower tumor growth by as much as 50 percent.

Powerful Antioxidants

Walnuts have higher quality antioxidants and a mix of more healthy antioxidants than any other nut. Antioxidants block the activity of free radicals in your body. Free radicals are highly reactive and have the potential to cause damage to cells, including damage that may lead to cancer.

Good for Your Heart

Eating just four walnuts a day has been shown to significantly raise blood levels of heart-healthy alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), which is an anti-inflammatory and may prevent the formation of pathological blood clots. Eating walnuts also supports healthful cholesterol levels.

Reduces the Risk of Diabetes

The beneficial dietary fat in walnuts are good for insulin sensitivity. Women who reported eating one ounce (30 g) of nuts at least five times per week reduced their risk of type 2 diabetes by almost 30 percent compared to those who rarely or never ate nuts, say researchers at the Harvard School of Public Health.

Stress Reliever

Your body may deal with stress better with a diet rich in walnuts and walnut oil. Research found that walnuts and walnut oil lowered both resting blood pressure and blood pressure responses to stress in the laboratory. The researchers said the study shows that a dietary change could help our bodies better respond to stress.

Happy Wednesday!

Happy Wednesday!

When we think of eating healthy we generally think of veggies and fruits.  But, who said eating healthy has to be boring? You only live once and might as well eat whatever makes you happy, but do it in a healthy way!

I found two recipes that I'm sure you'd enjoy.  One is for those who have a sweet tooth and the other has more of a citrus and tangy flavor for those of you who like things a little spicy!



RECIPES:

Edamame hummus
1 bag frozen shelled edamame, thawed
2 tbsp, Extra Virgin Organic Olive Oil
2 tbsp. tahini
2 garlic cloves
3 tbsp. lemon juice
1/2 tsp. sea salt
1/4 tsp. ground coriander or some fresh cilantro
1/4 tsp. cumin
2 tbsp. coarsely chopped fresh herbs (optional--I used rosemary, thyme, and basil)

Instructions:
Combine edamame, tahini, lemon juice, garlic, and herbs in food processor. Process until smooth. Drizzle olive oil through feed tube, continuing to process until oil is fully incorporated. Season with salt to taste and serve!


Coconut Almond Sweet & Salty Popcorn

1 tbsp. melted coconut oil
1 tbsp. almond butter
2 tbsp. chopped almonds
2 tbsp. shredded coconut
1 tsp. stevia
A pinch rock salt

Instructions:
Mix together and pour over plain popcorn & put in freezer 10 min to harden.
This serves 2. Popcorn is actually a healthy snack as long as it isn’t loaded in butter and salt. It packs a lil protein & fiber too!
