Nutri lipidomica

Walnuts and essential seed tangerine flavor bites

The nature gave us seeds that we might call essential since they are good fats sources for our health. Obviously, the seeds composition is variable from plant to plant and some of them, presents a health promoting lipidomic profile.
With this recipe we wanted to create a snack for a light meal, a break, that allows us to introduce some basic fundamental fatty acids that otherwise we hardly consume during the main meals.
