Throughout history, walnut trees have been prized not only for having a life span several times that of humans but also for the food, medicine, shelter, dye, and lamp oil it provides. The folds and wrinkles of the walnut look just like the human brain. Its shape even approximates the brain’s left and right hemispheres. It’s no surprise that walnuts have been nicknamed “brain food,” thanks to its high omega-3 fatty acid content, which supports brain function. Approximately 90% of the phenols in walnuts are found in the waxy, flaky, slightly bitter skin so it’s healthiest not to remove it. Toss it in your favorite salads or sprinkle it over your yoghurt and add a dash of maple syrup. Perfect for brownies, cookies and other baked goodies.
