Although cashews get a bad rap for being high in fat, they are one of the healthiest nuts around! More than 80% of their fat content is from healthy unsaturated fatty acids, similar to those found in olive oil.
In fact, these nuts are an excellent snack for diabetics! Cashews are high in monounsaturated fat, which helps lower triglyceride levels. And if you’re a diabetic, that’s music to your ears : )
And if you’re not diabetic, you can still delight in the other health benefits cashews provide, like loads of iron that keeps skin, hair, and nails healthy, and heaps of magnesium that is vital for healthy bone structure and regulating nerve and muscle tone.
In fact, cashews are included on the Whole30 food list as one of the best fats to add to your diet, along with Hazelnuts (Filberts), and Macadamia Nuts! < -- Click on the blue link for DRY ROASTED Hazelnuts and Macadamia nuts, which are healthier than oil “roasted” nuts from the other guys!
