Your chance to win when you #ShareThePowerof3

This month we’re spreading the word about the heart health benefits of California Walnuts and asking everyone to #ShareThePowerof3. Join in the celebration and you may be lucky enough to win one of our Power of 3 California Walnut kits.

California Walnuts can be used to add extra taste and texture to a variety of dishes. Add them to cereal at breakfast, enjoy as a snack at any time of day or include in salads and pasta dishes to start improving overall nutrition.

Walnuts are the only tree nut to contain a significant amount of omega-3 ALA. With around 7.4 million people in the UK living with heart and circulatory disease1, looking after your heart health is a must. Our bodies cannot make omega-3 ALA so it is important to ensure we eat foods that contain it, for good heart health and normal growth and development.

The great news is that there is a very tasty way to do this. Eating a handful of smooth and creamy California Walnuts a day (30g) can help maintain normal blood cholesterol levels2 and help reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease3.

So here’s where you come in…

  • Simply share a picture of your favourite way to enjoy California Walnuts on your social media platform (Twitter, Facebook and Instagram) and use #ShareThePowerof3 and #CaliforniaWalnutsUK
  • Make sure to set your post to public so we can find it
  • This could be snacking, baking, or any meals that you are using a handful of California Walnuts in – don’t forget that California Walnuts are available from most retailers – just look for product of California or product of USA on the pack
  • You can share as many different ways as possible – try and enjoy at least 3 handfuls a week and if you need any inspiration our Recipe section is packed full of simple yet delicious dishes
  • Each week (Friday 14th, Friday 21st and Friday 28th February) we will randomly select one winner from all entries who will receive a California Walnuts kit containing:
    • A California Walnuts Tote Bag
    • A California Walnuts Bento Box
