Walnuts have a well-earned reputation as a rather distinguished nut with above-par taste, texture, and versatility. They're top-notch in the nutritional department, too.
Walnuts have been credited with having healing powers ever since they were first discovered thousands of years ago and were the pride of Persian royalty. Seems those foresighted folks were onto something: Turns out that walnuts are indeed believed to help improve your memory and other cognitive functions. Which is entirely fitting given the way the crinkly nut resemble your cerebrum. Note to self!
And if you are an organic-only shopper, you'll appreciate getting so much brain-bolstering power with these fresh and flavorful raw walnut halves. Enjoy them on their own, toss them into granola and trail mixes, roast them along with broccoli or brussels sprouts, crush and use a crispy coating for fish or chicken, or bake them into wholesome carrot muffins or zucchini bread. And here's something worth remembering: Walnuts pair especially well with blue cheese and apples or pears, either in salads or as a tasty after-dinner nibble.
