Wal­nuts Don’t let that bowl of fes­tive nuts go to waste – they can give your health a boost. Wal­nuts con­tain the high­est level of an­tiox­i­dants com­pared to other nuts, and are rich in omega-3 fatty acids. They are tra­di­tion­ally as­so­ci­ated with mem­ory, and one study found that eat­ing a hand­ful a day may help im­prove per­for­mance in mem­ory and con­cen­tra­tion tests. Eat­ing wal­nuts may also help im­prove heart health – a study found that reg­u­lar con­sump­tion was as­so­ci­ated with re­duced choles­terol. As a snack, they can help boost healthy bac­te­ria in the gut, too, and keep you feel­ing fuller for longer*.
