In one ounce of walnuts you get 4 grams of protein, 18 grams of healthy fat, only 190 calories, and one heck of snack…but what else are walnuts good for?
Walnuts are heart healthy, and everyone wants a healthy heart. Walnuts are considered an important part of any plant-based diet since they are high in protein fiber and antioxidants that fight cancer, promote healthy aging and may improve reproductive health!
