Improve Your Life: Like all nuts, walnuts pack a punch when it comes to their fat content. But, they also abound with antioxidants (more polyphenols than any other common nut, as a matter of fact!), protein and heart-healthy alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), a plant-based omega-3 essential fatty acid.

  • 1 tbsp orange zest
  • 1/4 cup fresh orange juice
