I've been trying to est more nuts. I often have a handful of almonds in the late afternoon to keep me going until dinner. And when I have oatmeal for breakfast I'll add some chopped walnuts (toasted for a few minutes on the stove). And one of my favorite combinations is a beet and goat cheese salad with toasted walnuts or pecans.

One of my favorite vegetarian meals is this pasta from Cooks Illustrated -
