I was in Paris early fall last year, and chanced upon a cache of fresh Hazelnuts at a little marche’, which I scooped up into a paper bag. Three days later, I was still eating them for breakfast, mid morning snack or really anytime snack. I loved that they were still in their natural Hazelnut wrapping, which I had to peel back to the hard shell, which I cracked open to reveal the raw and pure Hazelnut inside. Hazelnuts have many health benefits, such as being rich in folic acid, enriching red blood cells ( essential for oxygen transport throughout the body), and provide the body with proteins, which are considered the building blocks for the formation of tissues and muscle mass. Hazelnuts are so delicious too!
