Apple Pie Energy Bites
Paleo recipes are the way to go for individuals who avoid grains because they don't agree with them or simply want to lower the inflammation in their bodies.

Walnut Health and Beauty Benefits
Walnuts are one of the smaller, less-assuming super foods. The humble walnut is often neglected when it comes to assessing the many health-boosting foods we eat. Nuts are an amazing source of protein for non-meat eaters. Some nuts (like walnuts) have even more health benefits than most of us are aware of, leading to their categorization as ‘Superfoods!’
Merely one-quarter a cup of walnuts provides more than 100 percent of the daily recommended value of plant-based omega-3 fats. In addition to high amounts of copper, manganese, molybdenum, and biotin. These paleo apple pie bites are filled with just the right about of walnuts to provide your body with omega-3 fats.
Walnuts may help reduce not only the risk of prostate cancer but breast cancer as well. These sensational nuts also contain the amino acid l-arginine. These benefit individuals with heart disease due to the many vascular benefits. Walnuts contain several unique and powerful antioxidants that are available in only a few commonly eaten foods.
Walnuts the Impressive Nut
This impressive little nut contains protein and healthy fats which help regulate your blood sugar levels. A beautiful benefit of adding walnuts into your diet is the compound, alpha-linolenic acid, which is powerful when it comes to strengthening the skin. Selenium in walnuts is important for a healthy scalp. PUFAS, polyunsaturated fatty acids, contained in walnuts, help dry the scalp due to their anti-inflammatory properties.
They also have been proven to improve sperm quality, help with weight control, and offer support for brain health and type 2 diabetes.
