If you are not a fish fan or a vegan? Then go nuts with walnuts because it is one of the best nonfish sources of omega-3 fatty acids, the reason they are considered heart-smart snacks. Nuts are loaded with monounsaturated fats that benefit the heart, stabilize blood sugar, and help you lose weight. Don’t overdo it, one cup of walnuts has more calories than a Big Mac. So how much is enough …… 1 ounce at least five times a week. You should store nuts in the fridge for up to a month or freeze ina sealed container for a few months.

    I recently geared away from cow milk. It was so expensive at the store until I saw your post. Now I make my own walnut milk and it’s delicious! My family can’t even tell the difference!
