Nourishment Notes


Though high in calories, walnuts are rich in healthy omega-3 fatty acids, which are helpful for reducing inflammation.


Full-fat dairy products, such as cheese, cream, and whole milk, are high in calories. A high-calorie diet may be necessary if unwanted weight-loss is occurring. Full-fat dairy also provides important nutrients such as calcium, potassium, and vitamin D.
