“I've increased the amount of fish in my diet, and this is one of my favorites. Not only is fish good for prevention of heart disease, but my arthritis has improved since I'm eating good Omega-3 oils.” Timothy C.
A Note from the Nutritionist:
Nuts contain a type of good-for-you fat. Any type of nut—almond, pecan, walnut or cashew—can be substituted for the hazelnuts. Nuts can become rancid quickly, so it's best to store them in the freezer and taste them before using in your recipes.
