Nuts are a fantastic source of healthy fats, proteins and a variety of minerals.  Walnuts in particular contain the highest amount of plant based omega-3 essential fatty acid, called alpha-linolenic acid (ALA).  Walnuts also supply protein, fiber, magnesium and phosphorous.  Offering a tasty plate of spiced or seasoned nuts in place of cheese and crackers is a great way to show family and friends you care about their health.  Keep in mind, while nuts are nutrient dense, they are also calorie dense – a little goes a long way.  Keep portion size in mind while savoring every delicious bite.
