Superfood Tip: Cashews
August 29, 2014
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.
