BTD Forums  /  Eat Right 4 Your Type  /  Walnut Oil...Yummilicious
Posted by: Debra+, Monday, May 28, 2007, 3:01pm
On the weekend I made a trip to a larger city (Sudbury) to the south of me and happened to purchase some walnut oil.  I had never tried it before and thought that it was about time I did.  This morning for breakfast I made buffalo burgers (another city purchase) and had a large green salad in which I drizzled a wee bit of walnut oil and lemon juice.  Well...what a wonderful taste.  And...as a nonnie...it is a beneficial.   :D

Just had to share. ;)

debra+, will you please give me an idea of how much oil you use on an average day? Also how much ghee? I am a little confused about the amount that I should be using. I am looking forward to a trip to the HF store tomorrow to get some walnut oil too. ;)

I absolutely love walnut oil. Actually prefer it in my salad dressing because it doesn't coagulate when refrigerated. I also use it when making walnut butter. And it's a bennie for me. I like evoo, too, just not for everything.

I don't think so....at least...I don't remember....:) and you know how my memory is.  NOT.   Hey...no need for apologies girl...now when you come here I can serve it to you.   :)  And...bought some of that white chocolate for you in the city when I was there.  Now I am all set for you.   What day do you arrive? ;) ;)

Dewdrop...actually, I don't think I use enough oils...especially the olive.  I seem to be using more ghee which has not been helping me (weight wise) as I tend to over indulge in it.  Sooooooo yummilicious.  Oils I try to drizzle just a bit on my foods.  Not quite sure how much as most of the time I don't measure.   I guess I should. ;)  I did for a while about a year ago.  Too impatient for it. ;)

And...after just looking it up again in Live Right...oils for O nonnies is supposed to be 3-5 times per week for me.  Hmmm...I have a salad at least once a day and some kind of oil on them and take flax seed oil almost daily.    Plus the ghee...maybe I better start tweaking. ;)  Or not. ;)

3-5 times per week seems like such a small amount....think I eat oil or ghee 3-5 times per day, which is why I was wondering how much you and others ate. Guess I will need to cut down...very sad.

Maybe it was a typo like the fruits...should've been per day. ;)  One can always dream. :D

I agree. Walnut oil is a keeper, Debra!

For a change, I use walnut oil + walnuts instead of olive oil in baking spelt bread.
A half/half mix of walnut and olive oil in salad dressings is also wonderful. And it stretches the precious walnut oil....
Walnut bread together with a fresh green salad dressed with the 50% walnut oil is one of my favourite lunches.

Oh...good idea, eh with the walnut oil and the olive oil.  And you people stop teasing with the breads. ;);) :K)

And Dewdrop...I wonder how dark 99% chocolate would be with walnut oil?  hmmmm. ;)

The portion size is 1 Tablespoon...  My guess is that most individual salads do not have 1 T of oil...  If you only use 1 teaspoon of oil per salad, you could have 3 times the frequency - all within the limits...

A little one teaspoon drizzle of walnut oil over a fresh salad is a nice change from evoo, flaxseed oil, and other delicate culinary oils.

I have not used walnut oil for awhile; it is a nice beneficial oil for many individuals to be used with uncooked foods, with cooled foods, with making dressings, with adding to recipes, with steamed vegetables, and with fresh salads.
