TOP GO-TO RECOMMENDATIONS FOR SMARTER SNACKING
California walnuts is one of Frances' favorite snack recommendations. Snacking on California walnuts is food for thought, literally, because walnuts are the only nut that offer an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids, which support brain health. One ounce of walnuts provides 4 grams of protein, 2 grams of fiber and 2.5 grams of ALA omega-3 fatty acid. A growing field of research is looking at the connection between walnuts and brain health. Walnuts can be seasoned to meet sweet, salty or spicy flavor cravings while providing valuable nutrients to keep up energy. Try recipes like California Walnut Romesco Sauce, Walnut Pesto, Beet Muhammara, Walnut Trail Mix and Carolina BBQ Walnuts. Look for seasoned walnuts at grocery stores, check out walnuts.org for easy snack recipes, or simply grab a handful to snack smarter this summer.
