Crunchy Walnut Chicken Salad

This is a concoction of food I had handy, and we needed something to eat for lunch. A pretty simple concept-nothing fancy here.

Cooked chicken with some crunchy things thrown in, plus a side of chopped walnuts since the walnut is the only nut – and one of the few plant-based foods – that contains omega-3.

Omega-3 is an essential fatty acid (meaning we need to obtain it from our diets). Among the many benefits, omega-3 plays an important role in cognitive function and bringing down inflammation in the body.

It’s pretty fitting since the walnut is shaped like a little brain. 

Served in a Joseph’s Pita Bread half with slices of fresh avocado, it was not only filling,  but it was very much  dee-double-licious!
