    LOL Gvarda! I could say something about the celebrated manly variety, but I won't. ;)

    My one and only favorite nut: Walnuts! My favorite Ukrainian bread to bake is a nut roll, made with a walnut filling. I will be making some soon for Easter.  Plus, walnuts are just plain healthy, and I always have some on my desk.

    A few walnut facts:

    One ounce of walnuts, or about 14 halves, has 185 calories, 4 grams of protein and carbs, 2 grams of fiber and 18 grams of fat. Of those 18 fat grams, 2 grams are saturated, 3 grams are monounsaturated and the rest is polyunsaturated.

    Walnuts are the only nut that contains large amounts of omega-3 fatty acids. That means they’re good for not only cardiovascular health but also building muscle and losing fat.

    Lightly toasted walnuts make an excellent addition to a number of dishes. Toss them in salads, add them to green beans sautéed in olive oil or sprinkle them on Greek yogurt. Alternatively, invest in some walnut oil. It’s expensive and not ideal for cooking (high temperatures degrade its flavor and nutrient profile), but it makes a great base for salad dressings.

    Walnuts’ fat content makes them prone to rotting. Store shelled nuts in the freezer or fridge to improve their longevity.

    For some reason, I have a suspicion 5xa's 2 favorite nuts are Jewish.

    Indeed! European nuts are different from American or Jewish ones. So I hear. ;)

    Are almond trees common in Ukraine? My Aunt Marfa used to send us a huge shoe box (!) full of almonds every year until her death. (Not from Ukraine, but California, where she immigrated. She planted almond trees in her yard there.)

    Posting a pic and nuts should not be in the same train of thought :D
