I love walnuts but that’s probably because they are found on top of a Walnut Whip, my favourite chocolate treat.
Pistachios are also a favourite, closely followed by peanuts and hazelnuts.
Although extremely good for you, the almond has never really lit my fire. I don’t particularly like it either when it’s upgraded to almond paste or marzipan and wrapped around a beautiful rich fruit cake, smothering it, before the sugar overloaded icing is added on top.
Nuts & seeds have increased in popularity in recent years. They are famed for their dietary benefits, providing beneficial, healthy omega 3’s and healthy fats.
Almonds are I believe a superfood, high in magnesium, a mineral now almost depleted from our souls.
Every time I see a bowl of nuts it reminds me that it’s ok to be different, unique and individual.
It also encourages me to regularly let my hair down and go just a little nuts!
