Yes! You Need to Eat Walnuts!

4 Reasons You Should Eat Walnuts

walnuts

A mainstay of any dietary recommendations, walnuts are an excellent choice when it comes to healthy snacking. Walnuts are good sources of:

  1. Omega-3 fatty acids, protective fats that may promote cardiovascular health, help maintain optimal cognitive function, and tone down inflammation.
  2. Heart-healthy monounsaturated fats.
  3. Ellagic acid, an antioxidant compound that helps support a healthy immune system.
  4. L-arginine, an essential amino acid that promotes healthy blood pressure.

Try adding walnuts to your plain yogurt and fruit parfaits or steel cut oatmeal to start the day, eat them as a snack, and use walnut oil in salad dressings for a nutritional boost. Or try a Walnut Pesto recipe!
