This recipe includes is packed with nutrients and contains walnuts ( one of my favourite nuts). Walnuts rank high for containing omega-3 fatty acids, which are essential to your health. Walnuts provide the highest antioxidant content of ANY common nut. This matters because antioxidants fight inflammation and free radicals, offering protection against chronic diseases.
Omega-3s are healthy fats that help protect against blood clots, the formation of plaque in your arteries, and they can boost good cholesterol levels. This means they’re great for your heart, and also boost brain performance.
