A Note on Walnuts

Walnuts are a mainstay of my nutrition recommendations, walnuts are an excellent vegetarian source of omega-3 fatty acids, protective fats that promote cardiovascular health, cognitive function, and anti-inflammatory activity. (I recommend eating omega-3 fats daily to help protect the body against heart attack, stroke, cancer, and inflammatory diseases.) Walnuts also provide heart-healthy monounsaturated fats, ellagic acid, an immune-supportive antioxidant compound, and high levels of the essential amino acid l-arginine, which promotes healthy blood pressure.

Here's a great, vegan way to get your walnuts in! Plus, the only thing healthier than walnuts is quinoa AND walnuts!

You can make great meatballs using walnuts instead of hamburger. Here is a link to the recipe.
