Walnuts are one the healthiest nuts because they’re very high in Omega 3, and Omega 3 contains all the good fats that primarily help you from getting heart disease, making them really good for you.
Studies have shown that by including just a handful of nuts daily in your diet, you can reduce your chances by up to 50% of getting cardiovascular disease.
The good thing about Walnuts (and all nuts) is that you can easily incorporate them into your daily diet easily.
Some ideas for adding nuts into your diet include adding them to your breakfast cereal. It is also a good idea to buy cereals which contain a combination of dried fruits such as muesli.
Other ways you can add nuts to your diet is by adding them to salads, adding them to main meals, or simply putting them in a food processor when making a fruit smoothie drink.
Additionally they’re great just for snacking on if you are sat working at your desk, or watching the television, or when you’ve got guests around and you’re all socialising.
Some other foods you can already buy in the supermarket that contain walnuts include a waldorf salad which is very delicious, or you could replace ordinary bread you buy with a walnut loaf. Both these are also fun and easy to make for yourself.

I used to suffer from really dry facial skin but since I started adding walnuts each day to my diet it has improved greatly. I never realised they had Omega 3 in them either, that's the good oil you get from fish. I just think don't eat too many nuts as they can be quite fattening.
