Walnuts have claimed the distinction of most virtuous nut, according to The Journal of Nutrition. Researchers at the Harvard School of Public Health found that women who ate walnuts twice weekly reduced their risk of type 2 diabetes by 24 percent. “Walnuts, like other tree nuts, are packed with beneficial nutrients such as unsaturated fats, fiber, plant protein, minerals, and antioxidants,” explains lead researcher Frank Hu. “They’re a rich source of omega-three fatty acids.” Toss some into your breakfast cereal, salads, or even blend with basil, garlic, and olive oil for a fresh take on summer pesto. That’s health in a nutshell!
