What We Love About Cashews
Fresh cashews are perfect snacks and cooking ingredients.
There are so many reasons why we love cashews. They are a feel good food that makes a great snack and ingredient in many different kinds of recipes.
What you might not know about cashews is where they come from and how they get to your table. Cashews are native to Brazil and are grown commercially in Vietnam, Nigeria, India, and Indonesia. Considerable labor is required to remove the nut (or seed) from each cashews fruit. Then the nuts are dried and prepared for sale.
Cashews are eaten as snacks and also used in cooking. They are excellent in stir fries and also on top of salads. When soaked, they can be ground and blended to make non-dairy cheese.
We love their versatility and delicate flavor. They also have several health benefits. Studies have shown that cashews can affect your mood in a positive way. Eating a couple handfuls of this delicious nut can actually make you feel happy, reduce stressful feelings, and produce calmness.
The reason cashews can lift your spirits is that they are loaded with tryptophan, an amino acid that help the brain product serotonin which makes you feel good. Cashews also have more magnesium than almonds which assists the nervous system and can reduce anxiety. Lastly, cashews contain healthy fats which are important for brain health.
