Walnuts not only taste great, they are also a rich source of heart-healthy monounsaturated fats and an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids. These are needed for normal growth and development, cognitive function and focus. Studies also show they can help decrease symptoms of anxiety and depression, and assist in regulating our moods! Like most nuts, they can be easily added to your meals or snacks. Just chop and add to your favorite salad, vegetable dish, fruit, or dessert.
