Nuts to you

Posted 01/12/2012 | By HealthCorps

As in walnuts, that is. Nuts supply healthy protein and a boost from ALA – omega 3 fatty acids, which have been shown to help reduce inflammation in the boy. Walnuts also contain both mono-unsaturated fats and polyunsaturated fats, both considered healthier fats. If you’ve never toasted walnuts, a great treat as the weather gets colder, check out: http://walnuts.org/walnuts/index.cfm/recipes/cooking-videos/how-to-toast-walnuts/

Pastry chef Emily Luchetti shows you how. You’ll also find a robust recipe finder on the website. You can add a handful of these delicious nuts to morning oatmeal, a lunch-time salad or as a healthy topping on a dinner soup or baked potato.
