Nutrition Notes:

  • This may be simple, but it’s packed full of important nutrients! Bananas are rich in potassium, Vitamin C, and fiber, while walnuts provide omega-3 fatty acids and antioxidants.

Savings Tip:

  • Walnuts can sometimes be expensive, but you can swap them out for chia or sunflower seeds.
