Call me hooked on cashews — the raw ones. I picked up a bag at the Food Coop 2 or 3 weeks ago and I keep going back for more. A great snack that seems to boost my energy levels while curbing my insatiable need to chew, cashews are high in protein, mono-saturated fats, copper and magnesium. Mono-saturated fat is considered a healthy fat. These are my favorite nuts for sure. If you’re looking for healthier, crunchy snacks then nuts and seeds are the way to go!
NOTE: If you have a hard time digesting nuts, you can soak them in filtered water from 15 minutes to 3 days — it all depends. Pay attention to your tummy, it will let you know if cashews are your friend.
