Power Up Your Lunch Routine
with Walnuts

A midday break is more important than many of us realize. Stepping away and fueling up with a nutritious meal is the best way to come back energized and ready to tackle the rest of the day.

Walnuts are a versatile nut that pairs well with many ingredients. Better yet, walnuts provide key nutrients like protein (4g/oz), fiber (2g/oz) and ALA omega-3 fatty acids (2.5g/oz), making them a simple yet powerful addition to any lunch.

Check out these quick and easy ways to incorporate walnuts into your lunchtime meals:

  • Power Bowl Topper – Toasted walnuts offer just the right amount of flavor and crunch alongside grains, veggies and leafy greens.
  • Go-To Trail Mix Nut – Switch up your trail mix recipe by adding in walnuts for an extra crunch with omega-3’s (2.5 g/oz). They’re the perfect addition to your bento box lunch!
  • Aioli & Pesto – Toss walnuts into a food processor with arugula or basil and olive oil or mayo for a quick walnut aioli or pesto. The spreads are a perfect flavor booster for wraps, sandwiches, or as a dip.
  • Plant-Based Meat Alternative – Pulse walnuts and mushrooms, cauliflower or beans through a food processor with desired seasoning for a delectable meat replacement in chili, tacos, pasta sauce and more.
  • Spice Up Your Snacks – If you are more of a midday snacker than a lunch eater, consider seasoned walnuts for a quick pick-me-up. Toss them in honey, rosemary and extra virgin olive oil, maple syrup or even cayenne pepper before toasting – and voila! – a delicious homemade snack or alternative to croutons on your salad.
