The Greeks were known for assigning names to objects based on a reflection of its action or appearance. Many people refer to the walnut as “brain food”, and if we look at its Greek name, Karyon [nucleus], we can understand why. The shell resembles a human skull and the walnut kernel itself looks like a brain. Apart from looking like one, the benefits it reaps for your noggin is astounding. It is flooded with nutrients, as 7 shelled walnuts contain 4g of protein, 2g of fibre and is known to create a feeling of fullness, therefore aiding in the diet process. Being the oldest known tree food in the world, and dating back to 7000 B.C, the walnut has created quite the reputation for itself, but not any old walnut will do; quality does not come about easily.
