There are a lot of reasons to eat more nuts during the day. For me it is an important ingretient for my muesli, smoothies, cookies, salads and other meals. You can ground them or use them complete for whatever you want. Nuts and especially walnuts are full packed with many healthy benefits, for example plant-based Omega-3 fatty acids which are anti-inflammatory. It is so easy to add nuts within the day.
I love beking Muffins for the whole week and take them with me to work to have a healthy snack on hand. This recipe can be make vegan or with yogurth and honey if you like.
