Black olive pesto sandwich,much favourite pesto made using walnuts is used as a spread to make this sandwich…walnut does wonders for the brain. . In fact, its shape is just like our brain! that’s why it is believed to be the best brain food. Basil being good source of iron and it is necessary for blood formation and thus in supplying nutrients and oxygen to the brain cells. However who do not like pesto can just munch 2 to 3 walnuts every day.
