As the holiday festivities come to a close, many individuals begin to contemplate New Year’s resolutions for 2014. Eating better and adopting healthier lifestyles are at the forefront of minds, which many think means putting away the holiday treats, and suffering through a bland and boring diet that lacks luster. Although corking the Champagne bottles and wrapping up the pastries is probably a wise choice, keeping your holiday bowl of walnuts out is a smart and delicious choice. Walnuts are the holiday gift that keeps on giving.
