This salad is loaded with omega-3 fatty acids. The combination of walnuts and kiwi will give you an awesome boost of these healthy fats that are so important for maintaining proper cell wall structure, brain function, mood stabilization and hormone balance. It is also super yummy!
Walnuts have been studied for their ability to lower the risk of heart issues. The particular form of vitamin E that is found in walnuts, known as gamma-tocopherol is most likely responsible for this heart protective effect.
