Smoky Spiced Walnuts

With everyone cutting flab and surviving on minimal resources, being enterprising about food takes precedence over everything else. But deriving nutrition from whatever we eat is also unavoidable. Hence Nmami Agarwal, founder and CEO of NmamiLife, which is among the 50 best wellness companies in India has shared with us a healthy recipe with walnuts. The official nutritionist for Manushi Chhillar, who was crowned Femina Miss India 2017, Nmami strongly believes and advocates eating right today for a healthy tomorrow to gain optimum wellness and not just one attribute that can be measured through a meagre weighing scale.
