About the event
Three decades of research have demonstrated that walnuts help support cardiovascular health, making them a key staple in a heart-healthy* diet. What’s more, newer research has shown that a handful of walnuts is the bridge not only to heart-health, but many other positive lifestyle improvements including improved diet quality and overall intake of crucial nutrients for well-being.
Join Kristy and Jackie as we share the latest research on walnut consumption and heart health, demonstrating how a handful of walnuts can be a simple way to help support whole body health. They will also demonstrate two unique walnut recipes that can be shared with your patients and clients during this upcoming American Heart Month.
