This healthy nut snack is from my arthritis cookbook for a reason. Omega 3 fatty acids are essential for the body to work properly. We must get them through our diet because they are not made in the body. Research supports a long list of health benefits from eating foods rich in omega 3 fatty acids. Healthy benefits include reducing the risk of heart disease, stroke and lowering cholesterol and also reducing joint pain from inflammation.

I am about healthy cooking and making eating healthy simple for you!! In Eating Well To Fight ArthritisI devoted a chapter to Omega-3 rich foods for an anti inflammatory diet and this book includes good for your heart healthy easy recipes!
