Food Swap Friday – Walnuts for Croutons

Are you like me, and absolutely NEED that crunch and flavor of croutons on your salad? I know those little things are bad for me, but I neeeeeeed them!

Well maybe this swap will help me… Croutons are high in sodium, often coated in butter, and full of empty calories—around 10 per piece, which can tally up in a hurry. Obviously, not the best way to top your microgreens, right?

A healthier crunch alternative is walnuts, which are loaded with nutrients like omega-3s that are good for you, but will also help keep you satisfied, with the added bonus of fiber and protein!
