Wellness Wednesday

As I'm a bit late getting my Wellness Wednesday up today, I'm just going to share a short health tip.

According to the April 2011 issue of Health, walnuts are not only good for lowering your LDL (bad) cholesterol but also help ease stress.  A Penn State study reveals that walnuts, which contain alpha-linolenic acid (not found in other nuts), may help lower your blood pressure and thus your ability to react better to stress.  Just don't over do it as nuts are also high in calories.
