When You Eat Just 5 Walnuts, This Will Happen In 4 Hours

walnuts
If you know anything about healthy eating, you likely know that nuts are a true superfood. From almonds and pistachios to peanuts and walnuts, all nuts are a great source of healthy fats and offer numerous health benefits. If you want to take your healthy eating to the next level, find out why walnuts should be part of your diet.

NUTRIENTS FOUND IN WALNUTS

When you look at the nutrient stats for walnuts, it’s almost impossible to believe that one small handful of this food can give you so many different vitamins and minerals. Instead of grabbing a handful of potato chips or candy, a handful of walnuts can give you everything you need to keep going until your next meal.
These are some of the most crucial nutrients found in walnuts:
  • omega-3 fatty acids
  • polyunsaturated fats
  • phenols
  • vitamin E
  • antioxidants

HOW EATING WALNUTS IMPROVES YOUR HEALTH

These nutrients sound great, of course, but what can they do for your health? By incorporating one ounce of walnuts into your diet every day, you may reap some of these health benefits:
  • Lower stress levels: If you suffer physically as the result of stress or tend to overreact to stressful situations, you may need walnuts in your diet. Walnuts can stabilize your body’s response to stress and help you avoid the physical side effects of this mental condition
  • Strengthen your heart: Antioxidants should be a major part of your diet. The antioxidants found in walnuts can battle free radicals that cause heart disease and degeneration. Regular consumption of walnuts can help your heart last longer and enjoy better health.
  • Protect your brain from age-related degeneration: The consumption of walnuts has been linked to a decrease in Alzheimer’s disease, thanks to the omega-3 fatty acids that are found in them. Omega-3 fatty acids can also reduce cancer risk, help with ADHD, and fight off depression.
  • Lower cholesterol levels: A study in the New England Journal of Medicine shows that men who consume walnuts have lower bad cholesterol levels than those who do not eat walnuts. This goes hand-in-hand with the heart benefits of walnuts.
  • Weight loss: Walnuts are an excellent source of polyunsaturated fats. These fats improve the functioning of body organs without clogging your arteries and negatively affecting your health like saturated fats. Polyunsaturated fats also keep you feeling full for longer, so your temptation to mindlessly snack may be decreased.
  • Stronger hair, skin, and nails: Polyunsaturated fats and omega-3 fatty acids do plenty for your appearance. These nutrients can strengthen your nails, make your hair shinier, and make your skin smoother.
Walnuts should be a part of your diet, no matter what health benefits most appeal to you. You can eat walnuts plain as a snack, sprinkle chopped walnuts on your salad, use them in desserts, or use them as a side dish for your meals.
Remember: don’t overdo it with walnuts! Though they are extremely healthy, they are also very high in calories and fat. A little goes a long way. Grab a few and enjoy!

Don´t buy property next to a farm


I would rather have animals making a noise smelling bad and having outdoor sex than having a downstairs drunken neighbour crying, shouting and having sex and neighbours upstairs walking constantly with high heels, talking loud and son vomiting at two in the morning for drinking too much. This is what its like living in my apartment in Portugal and please note, its sapposed to be a respectful high street neighbourhood.

I now pronoune you.....

Nutella French Toast Rolls - RECIPE

GodFruits

“When I was about eight or nine, my mom burnt some toast.
One night that stood out in my mind is when she had made dinner for us after a very long and rough day at work, She placed a plate of jam and extremely burned toast in front of my dad. Not slightly burnt but completely blackened toast.
I was just waiting to see if anyone noticed the burnt toast and would say anything. But Dad just ate his toast and asked me if I did my homework and how my day was. I don’t remember what I told him that night, but I do remember hearing my mom apologizing to dad for burning the toast. And I’ll never forget what he said:
“Sweetie, I love burned toast.”
Later that night, I went to tell my dad good night and ask him if he really liked his toast burned. He put his arm on my shoulder and said,
“Your momma put in a very long day at work today and she was very tired. And besides, A burnt toast never hurts anyone but you know what does? Harsh words!”
Then he continued to say “You know, life is full of imperfect things and imperfect people I’m not the best at hardly anything, and I forget birthdays and anniversaries just like every other human. What I’ve learned over the years, is that learning to accept each others faults and choosing to celebrate each others differences, is one of the most important keys for creating a healthy, growing, and lasting relationship. Life is too short to wake up with regrets. Love the people who treat you right and have compassion for the ones who don’t.”
Enjoy Life Now and Praise God!

THE SERENITY PRAYER

GOD GRANT ME THE SERENITY
TO ACCEPT THE THINGS I CANNOT CHANGE;
COURAGE TO CHANGE THE THINGS I CAN;
AND WISDOM TO KNOW THE DIFFERENCE.

ACCEPTING HARDSHIPS AS THE PATHWAY TO PEACE;
TAKING, AS HE DID, THIS SINFUL WORLD
AS IT IS, NOT AS I WOULD HAVE IT;
TRUSTING THAT HE WILL MAKE ALL THINGS RIGHT
IF I SURRENDER TO HIS WILL;
THAT I MAY BE REASONABLY HAPPY IN THIS LIFE
AND SUPREMELY HAPPY WITH HIM
FOREVER IN THE NEXT.
AMEN.
