Our Registered Dietitian’s Top Pick
Our Registered Dietitian and Health Nut always has raw organic cashews on hand, as they are a perfect way to boost the protein content of a stir fry and add in healthy fats to your eating routine. Another one of her favorite ways to enjoy cashews is to make cashew cream, which creates the ideal consistency for dressings, soups, or sauces. Making cashew cream is simple: cover the cashews in water, let them sit in the refrigerator overnight, drain most of the liquid, and then whip the cashews in a blender or food processor for a wonderful creamy texture and taste.
Health Benefits Of Organic Cashews
Like most nuts, organic cashews are rich in protein, dietary fiber, and antioxidants. They contain less fat than most other nut varieties, and nearly 75% of it is heart-healthy monounsaturated fat. In particular, raw cashews are an excellent source of oleic acid, the same “good” fat found in olive oil. Research shows that increasing your intake of oleic acid can protect your heart.
Organic cashews are a great nutritional addition to your diet because they are also rich in essential minerals like calcium, iron, magnesium, and potassium. Studies indicate that eating nuts like these ones may help reduce the risk for chronic conditions such as cancer, diabetes, and heart disease. This is because nuts are packed with protective nutrients like unsaturated fats, dietary fiber, vitamins and minerals!
