Dietitian’s tip:
> Don’t have walnut oil at home? Substitute with olive oil. Try bringing in some dark leafy greens by using 3 cups napa cabbage, 3 cups kale, washed, trimmed, shredded. When using kale, marinate shredded kale and cabbage in dressing for an hour before mixing in other ingredients to allow the kale to wilt.
