Raw and organic walnuts are one of the best plant sources of protein.

They are rich in fiber, B vitamins, magnesium and Vitamin E, and are also higher than most nuts in Omega-3 essential fatty acids. In fact, they are one of the richest food sources of alpha-linolenic acid (ALA). A 2009 study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition compared the effects of walnuts and fatty fish on coronary heart disease. The research found that although both of these food sources are rich in Omega-3 fatty acids, walnuts were more effective than fish at lowering LDL “bad” cholesterol. See more at Corky’s Nuts.
