Walnuts 101 - Top Reasons to Choose California Walnuts

  1. Walnuts have many uses beyond baking. Try chopped walnuts as a coating for seafood or chicken, in a pesto, tossed on top of a salad, ground with beans or cauliflower for a meat alternative, or in overnight oats.
  2. Walnuts are an easy, convenient way to add good fats, protein and fiber to a healthy diet.
  3. California Walnuts are a go-to source for plant-based omega-3s. Walnuts contain omega-3 alphalinolenic acid, or ALA, (2.5 grams/ounce) and is the only nut that contains a significant amount of this essential nutrient.
  4. Walnuts are certified as a heart-healthy food through the American Heart Association’s Heart-Check Food Certification program.
Reduce Food Waste

Leftovers are a great way to use foods in your fridge that otherwise would go to waste. Try to plan one meal per week that involves leftovers.
