Ingredient Tips & Benefits
- When buying cashews, look for raw, unsalted varieties. You will be doing the roasting yourself and you can control the salt content or leave out the salt altogether if you prefer.
- Cashews are a high-fat, high-protein nut choice (although they are actually seeds). Because they are high in unsaturated fatty acids, they are good for reducing heart disease, cancer and diabetes risks. They are also a great source of fiber, zinc, magnesium and antioxidants.
- Olive oil is high in monounsaturated fats and anti-inflammatory and antioxidant compounds. It’s also among the best-studied fats, with many known health benefits, such as helping to prevent cardiovascular disease.
