7 Delicious Walnut Recipes Under 400 Calories

May 17 is a nutty holiday: National Walnut Day. These nutrient-dense nuts are packed with omega-3 fatty acids, protein and fiber. An ounce of walnuts offers 4 grams of protein and 2 grams of fiber, both of which help you feel full, a key part in maintaining a healthy weight. They are also a good source of magnesium and phosphorous, important minerals for bone health. Walnuts add extra flavor and a delicious, satiating crunch to any meal. Celebrate the day with these seven wonderful walnut recipes.
