Nuts are very healthy foods, but we have to know how to consume them and especially which ones are the most recommended. In this type of recipes, it is essential to know what foods make it up, since not all the ingredients are beneficial for our health.

In this case, nuts such as walnuts and extra virgin olive oil make an ideal combination with many very beneficial nutrients.

We recommend buying quality walnuts, as it is the main ingredient. On many occasions we can find that they are too expensive. Therefore, try to find an offer or the best price.

Sometimes buying cracked or crumbled walnuts is cheaper. In this way, they will be cheaper and to crush them in this type of recipes, it is not necessary to buy them whole.

On the other hand, buying a ready-made nut cream is much more expensive than buying the ingredients separately. Cheaper and healthier, it is ideal.
