To make this vegan mayonnaise you need a few walnuts and sunflower seeds, and a blender. It is ideal for different types of salads of vegetables and greens.

In addition, it contains healthy proteins and fats, so necessary during fasting or in a vegetarian diet, without meat, eggs and other products of animal origin.

Walnut and Seed Mayonnaise Recipe

Walnut and seed mayonnaise - recipe

You can give up sunflower seeds and use only nuts. Any kind of walnuts are good: Romanian, Brazilian, cashew or macadamia nuts. You can find them at health food stores.

• 1 handful of walnut kernels
• 2-3 tablespoons of sunflower core
• 1 glass of water
• 1 tablespoon of lemon juice
• ½ teaspoon of salt
• 1 teaspoon of mustard powder

Walnut and Seed Mayonnaise Recipe

Put the walnut and sunflower kernels hydrated overnight in a bowl of water to cover them. This will soften the cores and make them easier to process.

The next day, rinse the nuts with clean water and put them in the blender. Add the freshly squeezed lemon juice, salt and mustard powder, obtained by grinding the mustard seeds through the electric coffee grinder. You can give up mustard powder if you do not have it, using sweet mustard instead to prepare the salad, if you like and if necessary.

Walnut and Seed Mayonnaise Recipe

For starters, add about half a glass of water (the water in which the nuts stood, which has turned a reddish color). Press the button and mix at low speed. Gradually add more water as the blender grinds to a core and clogs the blender.

Depending on the consistency you want for mayonnaise, add more or less water. For example, if you plan to use this mayonnaise for a root salad, you can make it softer, that is, more liquid.

Even if it doesn't seem to have a special taste, after you add it to the salad, it will give a special consistency and flavor to the vegetable mixture. You can also add a little oil.

Walnut and Seed Mayonnaise Recipe

Depending on the salad you will use, you can also use 2 cloves of garlic when grinding the kernels in a blender. Garlic and walnut make a particularly good pair in terms of flavor and texture.

Walnut milk

If you want to replace animal milk with something else for various reasons, walnut milk is an easy solution to implement with delicious results and a positive impact on your health.

Why is animal milk not healthy? Read the article & # 8220Milk: its importance and effects on the body & # 8220.


Method of preparation:

  • The walnuts are hydrated in water for 8 hours or overnight
  • Wash well and add 750 ml of water over them
  • There are now 2 options:

a. Add the water together with the walnut together with the walnut in the cold-pressed fruit juicer. I use Hurom slow juicer and I like how the milk comes out with it.
b. Blend the nuts with water and then squeeze the milk with a special milk bag or gauze.

Walnut kernel treatments

Walnut kernels are one of the most consistent and healthy foods known. It is a perfect meat substitute, better than soy. The walnut kernel given through the mincer perfectly replaces the minced meat in almost anything, from meatballs, to sarmale or roulade. Being very rich in fats and proteins, walnut surpasses meat in terms of caloric value, having instead a toxicity several times lower and being very digestible. In addition, walnut is the fruit richest in copper and zinc, which is why it is used in the treatment of vascular diseases, growth and maturation disorders, immune deficiencies.

Stroke - Regular consumption of heat-processed nuts strengthens blood vessels and prevents, especially in the elderly, their deterioration. Here is a very effective recipe:

  • 3 crushed walnut kernels,
  • 1 teaspoon of bee pollen
  • 2 tablespoons honey

mix very well, shaping into candy. Take all this mixture daily, on an empty stomach, in the morning.

Constipation - Consume the core of four lightly fried walnuts 10 minutes after consuming 1-2 glasses of plum compote or 2 tablespoons of liquid honey with water. The treatment is done on an empty stomach.

Diabetes - Like hazelnuts, walnuts are very low in sugar, which makes them a staple in diabetes, where raw foods and meat are especially recommended. In addition to hazelnuts, walnuts even have a slightly hypoglycemic action, helping to alleviate this condition.

Body weight below normal - due to the high content of fats that are easy to assimilate and that do not increase cholesterol, nuts consumed in large quantities are a basic part in fattening belts. This food is recommended for people who want to gain healthy weight without risking a sudden rise in cholesterol, an overload of the cardiovascular system or the appearance of problems such as cellulite or stretch marks.

hyperthyroidism - Walnuts have a regulatory effect on thyroid activity and, in addition, bring a considerable supplement of calories, which are known to be consumed in large quantities in this condition, hence the state of pronounced devitalization that occurs frequently.

Sterility, impotence - The intake of vitamin E, the presence of rejuvenating substances that protect and clean the blood vessels make nuts a very suitable food in the treatment of these two diseases. It is worth noting the beneficial effect of walnuts in preventing vascular impotence (which represents over 50% of cases of impotence).

Rheumatism, gout - Walnut shells have a strong depurative effect, favoring the mobilization and elimination of toxins from the body. A cure is made with hydroalcoholic extract (tincture) of walnut shells, from which two teaspoons diluted in half a glass of water are taken, 3 times a day. The treatment lasts 40 days and is preferably done in late autumn and early spring.

Hydroalcoholic extract Walnut shell is the most active preparation obtained from walnut, being very rich in iodine, flavonoids and tannins. It is obtained as follows: put in a threaded jar 20 tablespoons of green walnut shell powder, over which add two cups (500 ml) of 50-degree food alcohol. Close the airtight jar and leave to soak for two weeks, in a warm place, then filter, and the resulting tincture is placed in small, dark bottles. It is administered from this remedy, four times a day, one teaspoon diluted in a little water.

Leaf powder walnut is obtained by grinding as fine as possible with an electric coffee grinder. The storage of walnut leaf powder is done in hermetically sealed glass jars, in dark and cold places, for a maximum period of 2 weeks (because its volatile substances evaporate very quickly). Usually, it is administered 3-4 times a day, one level teaspoon of walnut leaf powder, on an empty stomach.

Walnut oil It is obtained only industrially, by cold pressing. It has a strong cholesterol-lowering effect, being also a vascular tonic and dewormer. Take 3-4 teaspoons a day, preferably on an empty stomach.

Peeled hemp seeds

Hemp seeds fall into the group of oilseeds, along with walnut seeds, or other types of seeds. Small but incredibly powerful nutritious, they have been cultivated and used by humans since ancient times. Even on the territory of the ancient Dacia, hemp appeared, from whose fibers the Dacians made their shoes, and Herodotus mentions the hemp seeds used as an energizer and even a drug of the Scythians, for when they started in battles. Hulled seeds can be eaten raw & # 8211 added to salads, sandwiches, groats or muesli. They can also be added to baked products or mixed with fruit, juice or milk.

Having a taste similar to pine and sunflower seeds, hemp seeds can be used in any recipe. In terms of nutritional content, hemp seed contains in principle 30% protein, 42% fat and 15% carbohydrates. For diabetics, the glycemic index of husked hemp seeds is considered low due to its low carbohydrate content. The seeds are also full of nutrients that moderate blood sugar levels.

The benefits of hemp seeds derive from their rich content in vitamins, minerals, polyunsaturated fats and amino acids necessary for protein synthesis. We will discuss these benefits in turn to show why it is advisable to include hemp seeds and hemp seed preparations in your regular diet.

During the winter, the biggest problem of nutrition is finding foods with a high energy potential. From the point of view of the value of proteins, food must have the property of increasing the vitality of the body, especially in the periods when it requires it.

Olive, sunflower, walnut or rapeseed oils were obtained by cold pressing. They were untreated with various chemical agents or subjected to various refining processes. These oils were not harmful to the body with a high energy intake. And some plants are recommended to be consumed for their energy intake.
