CASHEWS

Cashew nuts are the perfect alternative to sugary, highly processed snacks such as candy bars. They not only taste delicious, but these flavorful nuts are also packed with copper, an essential antioxidant that helps to neutralize free radicals in the system. And Food to Live has cashews of exceptional quality that you can buy in bulk from the comfort of your home.

Health benefits of cashews
Cashew nuts are the seeds found on the bottom side of cashew apples, a fruit that naturally grows on cashew trees. Cashew apples are extremely popular in the Caribbean, where the tasty fruit is referred to as a delicacy. Cashew seeds are pulled from the apples and shelled prior to consumption.

A single cup of raw cashews also provides over 100 percent of the daily recommended value of magnesium, an important mineral that plays a significant role in bone health and balanced blood pressure levels. They also contain high levels of potassium, B vitamins and folate.

A common misconception of cashew nuts is that they are extremely high in fat, but the reality is that cashews contain less than several other varieties of nuts. Not only that, but the majority of the fat in cashews is heart-healthy monounsaturated fat — the “good fat” that has been shown to help lower high triglyceride levels when combined with a low-fat diet.
