Zucchinis have a rich array of nutrients that help prevent cancer, reduce the risk of heart disease and help maintain optimal health. They are a great source of vitamin C, manganese, fiber, vitamin A and magnesium. They also contain protein, potassium, folate, copper, phosphorus, zinc, niacin and calcium.

Walnuts are full of nutrients, powerful antioxidants and omega-3 fats. One quarter cup of walnuts provides more than 100% of the daily recommended value of plant-based omega-3 fatty acids. They also contain high amounts of copper, manganese, biotin and vitamin E. They will help fight against cancer, reduce the risk of heart disease, support brain health and cognitive development and will slow down the aging process.
