Superfood Tip: Cashews |

Superfood Tip: Cashews

Cashews are our next tree nut to be featured in the series. One serving consists of 18 nuts and offers 157 calories, 12 grams of mostly heart-healthy fats, 5 grams protein and 1 gram fiber.

They are an excellent source of copper and magnesium — minerals essential to muscular function. Cashews have a soft consistency with a sweet flavor. They are great as a snack or in Asian-inspired recipes. They can be eaten as a slightly healthier (but more expensive) cashew nut butter.
