This blog is about one of my obsessions, one that I have t wait a whole year for and it only has a tiny window of time. No idea, what I'm talking about? Hahahha. Okay, Let me explain.
Growing up, almost everyone around me had a walnut tree. So I was used to eating walnuts when it was the right season. And with right season, I mean, the moment when they fall off the tree and are still fresh. Fresh enough to peel open en pull the skin off to reveal all of it's white glory.
Unfortunately, nowadays, only my parents still have a walnut tree, but it does have one of the best walnuts there is. Since I live in the north now, I can't get ANY fresh walnuts around here, because noone has a walnuttree in their backyard.
Luckely for me, I have the BEST parents a Nut like me could have.
So a week ago on thursday, my parents send me a box of this:
I only eat them fresh, because the taste is really different from dry ones. Also, dry ones make my throat hurt, it's the little skin that does that. When I have dried ones left, I use them to make bonbons, or french toast and such. They dry pretty fast, so theres only a small window of time in which I can eat them. And I eat A LOT! (last year I ate 3 or 4 full boxes *grins*)
On sunday, the box was empty, oops, hahaha! My parents just send me a new box on thursday (awesome!), so I'm good to go for a few days again. Thanx mom and dad, you're the best! :)
These always kep my winterdepression at bay, it's something to look forward to after summer has ended. And after this summer I really needed my walnuts, hahaha.
I read that walnuts are pretty helathy and are considered a superfood. Ofcourse thats when you eat 7 a day orso. Since I eat several KILOS in about a months time, I just hope it helps me through the year, hahaha.
Anyway it seems these are pretty good for people with a high bloodpressure, which is good news for me. They also have a lot of other healthy ingredients, so try them out sometime!
