Outfit of the Day: Walnuts
Today we are running between meetings with a handful of walnuts bouncing around in our tummies. After an assessment by EFSA, the EU Commission has recently decided that a health claim, pertaining to walnuts and cardiovascular function, can be obtained through just 30 grams of walnuts per day. So this means that there is a strong scientific-backed correlation between eating 30 grams of walnuts per day and a reduced risk of cardiovascular disease. That’s pretty powerful considering that cardiovascular diseases are among the most common causes of death in both Europe and the U.S!
