Nuts are a nutrient-dense food

Similarly, a serving of walnuts (roughly 14 walnut halves) contains 185 calories and are an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids, protein, and essential nutrients like Vitamin E, B Vitamins, and minerals such as Magnesium and Phosphorus. If you're looking for a healthy snack that's both delicious and highly nutritious, nuts are the way to go!
