Serving Size 1oz (about 4 walnut halves) = 190 calories

Walnuts are the only nut and one of the few foods to deliver a significant amount of alpha-linoleic acid (ALA), am omega 3 fatty acid that boosts cognitive function.  They’re also high in disease fighting gamma-tocopherol, a type of vitamin E.

Nutty Ideas:  For an extra protein shot, add chopped walnuts to guacamole or mix into Greek yogurt.  Swap walnut oil for olive oil and blend into pesto and dressings.
