Walnuts: We always like to highlight one of the items in a recipe for it’s health and nutritional benefits, and today the star of the show is walnuts. Walnuts are an excellent source of both vitamin E and a lot of the B-compound of vitamins. As for the minerals, walnuts give us potassium, calcium, manganese, copper, iron, magnesium, zinc and selenium. There are a lot of benefits walnuts give our bodies to work with, but remember they are also calorie dense so don’t go overboard and start eating them by the handful.
