Nutty News You Can Use!
Walnuts can protect your heart. Last week, the USDA stressed the need for consumers to be more aware of the benefit of including polyunsaturated fat in their diets and they specifically cited walnuts as a good choice. Cardiovascular Surgeon Dr. Anderson Morris says, "Walnuts are a very good source of antioxidants, vitamins, fiber, and omega-3 fatty acids. That's why I tell my patients that eating walnuts is like wearing a seat belt for your heart." Sounds like you've got carte blanche to fling a few walnuts into those No Pudge! brownies. Just don't go, um, NUTS.
