Walnuts...

I like to add walnuts to pancakes or waffles in the morning...

Walnuts Improve Artery Flexibility

A new study from the American Journal of Cardiology shows that adding walnuts (a healthy plant source of omega-3 fatty acid) to a high-fat meal reduces negative changes in arteries. Researchers from Barcelonaís Hospital Clinical compared how arteries are affected by five teaspoons of olive oil versus eight walnuts when added to a fatty meal. While both walnuts and olive oil decreased inflammation, walnuts increased the elasticity and flexibility of the arteries (called flow-mediated dilation, or FMD) by 24 percent for those with high cholesterol, and FMD was unchanged in the healthy control group. In comparison, those who consumed olive oil showed a 36 percent and 17 percent decrease in FMD for high-cholesterol and control participants, respectively.

Hi Andrew,

I like my Walnuts!!Actually, quite a wide variety of nuts, skip the salt. I will by them, and that is sometimes my snack food, after a meal. Perhaps not always the tastiest to the buds, but they are good for you...


Thanks-----Ray

Actually I have a bowl of walnuts in the shell I've been chomping on this afternoon.  Anyway, it's "Walnut Season" right now and they are easy to find.  They're probably my favorite nut, along with pistachios.

Hi there,

"To date, the Institute of Medicine at the National Academy of Sciences has not yet issued any Dietary Reference Intakes for omega 3 fats. Recently, however, the National Institutes of Health recommended that people consume at least 2% of their total daily calories as omega 3 fats. To meet this recommendation, a person consuming 2000 calories per day would have to eat at least 2 grams of omega 3 fats. Many nutrition experts believe that this recommendation is not high enough, and would suggest, instead, that people consume at least 4% of their total calories (approximately 4 grams) as omega 3 fats.



And here is some good info Queen ;
