Most of us eat California Walnuts. However did you know that you can purchase Organic Australian Walnuts from Wellwood Wallace? They are a taste sensation! Once you have tried them you will eat no other. These delicious kernels are chock full of Omega 3 fatty acids and antioxidants that boost heart health and also reduce the risk of diabetes, breast cancer and stress! They are perfect on their own or tossed through a salad. You can even use them to make my Date and Walnut Cake! 

So tell me reader, why aren’t we buying Australian Walnuts?

    Delicious looking cake…love the combination of dates and nuts…especially those seasonally fresh walnuts! (I wasn’t aware Australian walnuts were available…seems the California variety is what my stores offer…I’ll be on the lookout!)

      Thank you!! It is hard to find Australian walnuts in the supermarket, however sometimes there is one brand which you can buy called Riverside Australian Walnuts. We like to buy walnuts online from “Wellwood Wallace” because they are organic and when buying in bulk it is a lot cheaper! 🙂
