Snack Attack Series--Persimmons and Walnuts

Seasonal Snacks--Autumn

There is something so satisfying about the crunchy texture of a gorgeous Fuyu persimmon.  Sweet, musty and spicy, these babies go great with walnuts.

And did I mention the color?  Punchy oranges mixed with salmon and gold.  The Fuyu persimmon is so gorgeous and sculptural it would be right at home in a Dutch master's still-life painting.

Be sure to eat them while they're just a little softer than an apple. Don't let them get ripe and mushy. And you really only want the Fuyu persimmon.  They're the best for eating raw.  Just chop one up into bite-sized pieces, toss them all in a bowl and top with chopped walnuts.

Nothing could be more perfect for autumn snacking.

Seasonal Snack Attack Series--  It seems that one of the biggest challenges to sticking to a healing anti-inflammation diet is those times when you feel hungry between meals.  Having a plan in place before hunger strikes is essential.  That's what this series is all about.  Over time, I hope the snack ideas will grow to become a useful tool that you can use to stock your kitchen with delicious healing snacks that keep your tummy feeling full, your waistline trim and your body humming!  We're just getting started, but to see the snacks we've included so far, click here.
