Here’s this week’s lineup! The feature food is walnuts!
What do you see when you look at a walnut? Kind of looks like a brain, doesn’t it? And conveniently enough, walnuts are great for brain health!
They’re also a good source of plant based omega 3 fatty acids, and the heart healthy mono-unsaturated fatty acids… as well as fibre, anti-oxidants, vitamin E, and minerals.
Studies have correlated walnut consumption with reduced risk of type two diabetes, decreased inflammation and improved cardiovascular health, and better gut health!
SHOPPING TIP: If you’ve got a Costco membership, go here to buy your walnuts! They have the best price per weight! I’ve also done a taste test comparison with other brands and the Costco walnuts were far superior 🙂

Happy cooking 🙂
FOOD PREP TIP: Plan to cook enough chicken for both the sesame chicken rice bowl and the quinoa salad at the same time!
Likewise, make enough of the walnut sauce to use with both the salad rolls and the sesame chicken rice bowl. I would suggest eating the salad rolls first and then thinning the sauce out with a bit of extra oil for the rice bowls so that it drizzles better!
