When you’re on the run, keeping a little stash of raw nuts with you can help curb hunger while giving a boost of vitamins and minerals to help get us through the day.
Walnuts are an all-time favorite; they are a stone fruit of the walnut trees which are native to eastern North America, but they are now grown around the globe. They are great for you because they are high in fiber; low in carbs; packed with protein, iron, and essential fatty acids. They’re also rich in omega-3s, along with magnesium and copper.
Omega-3 fatty acids in walnuts also help your skin by locking in moisture and vitamin E. The vitamin B and biotin (vitamin B7) helps you have stronger healthier hair. Christie Brinkley Authentic Skin Care also works with your body to help rejuvenate and moisturize.
Eating walnuts can help improve heart and brain health, and some studies even show it may aid in the battle with certain cancers.
They can be eaten raw or roasted and added to an array of foods (including salads!) and we all know how great they are in baked goods. Walnuts are a superfood that keeps us healthy and beautiful, inside and out.
