No one can deny the fact that fathers are our real-life superheroes who are always there to shower their unconditional love on us. With 21st of June marking the special day this year, prepare your dad’s favourite meal with the added crunch of California walnuts and give him the pampering he deserves. Walnuts are significantly high in plant-based omega-3 fatty acids and are also rich in vitamins, minerals, and proteins. They are a complete nutrition powerhouse that may help maintain normal cholesterol levels and may also help keep cardiovascular diseases at bay. Just a handful (28 grams) of California walnuts every day can help your father lead a healthier tomorrow. Breakfast in bed, hearty lunch or an evening barbeque; prepare the meal he loves the most and show your love in the most personalized way.
