Why You Should Start Eating More Walnuts

Why You Should Start Eating More Walnuts

Why are walnuts so awesome? They are the only nuts that provide a significant source of omega-3 fatty acids, which have positive anti-inflammatory effects. In the U.S., we eat way too many omega-6 fatty acids, which are found in foods like vegetable oil (e.g. soybean, sunflower, corn, cottonseed, sesame oil, etc.), and not enough omega-3s, found in foods like walnuts and fatty fish. While walnuts do have omega-6s as well, the walnut ratio of omega-6 to omega-3 (about 4:1) is still a big improvement compared to other nuts (which don’t have much, if any, omega-3 at all, and still have a fair amount of omega-6, so the ratios are much higher).
