85 grams a day.
That's all you need.
What are we talking about?
I like walnuts.
I read an article in the weekend paper that stated walnuts would help to protect against heart disease and would also help to lower cholesterol.
(I could use a little cholesterol lowering....)
Nice. I like walnuts. (But they're a little on the expensive side...)
Anyway, the article did state that all you need to consume is 85 grams a day.
So I added them to my shopping list and off I went, swinging my little basket as I skipped down the road.......la de da de da....
Okay, okay, I carried my bag as I walked to the shops.
I found the walnuts right where I'd expected them to be, but when I saw the cost I wondered if the little nuggets were sprinkled with gold dust.
Really? That much? I bought them anyway.
I figured at 85g a day, the bag would probably last me almost a week, so a fair enough price if they really would do what "they" claimed.
I found my kitchen scales and weighed out 85 grams of walnuts. Turns out to be about a cupful. alright then, let's munch.
The first half dozen weren't so bad, then it began to be hard going.
Really! That's a lot of walnuts to be eating all at once.
Now I'm wondering if they need to be consumed in one sitting, or can I space them out through the day. A couple with breakfast, a few in a lunch salad, a half dozen right after dinner.
Being a smaller person, not anywhere near six feet tall, maybe I don't need the 85 grams.
I could space out three servings of 20 grams.
I'll just nibble on them a few at a time until they're gone, then buy another packet. Regular consumption of even a smaller amount has to be better than not eating any at all.
