Why Choose to Replace Animal Protein with Walnut Crumbles

Animal protein provides all of the essential amino acids needed within the body, but unhealthy saturated fats accompany these foods. The industrial efforts of raising livestock for food create a great deal of carbon pollution. A person doesn’t have to become a vegetarian or vegan to enjoy the health benefits of eating more plant-based foods. 

Walnut consumption is proven to improve cardiovascular health with lower LDL cholesterol, better blood pressure, lower weight, and higher HDL cholesterol. In addition, walnuts promote cognition, prevent age-related disease, reduce inflammation and inflammation-related illnesses, and so much more.

Designate one day a week to abstain from meat in order to help your body and your planet. When you do, you don’t have to sacrifice flavor or satisfaction either.
