November 22 wasn't just Turkey Day this year, did you know that this food-filled holiday also was National Cashew Day? On our snack table for Thanksgiving guests I layed out delicious and nutritious, protein-packed cashews.
Not only do cashews have a much lower fat content than most other nuts, about 75 percent of their fat is unsaturated fatty acids, but also much of the fat is oleic acid - the same heart-healthy fatty acid found in oliveoil. What’s more, cashews naturally contain a significant amount of several essential minerals and enzymes that are necessary for important physiological and chemical reactions in the body, such as copper, magnesium and manganese, amongst a host of several other nutrients.
On National Cashew Day, we munched the below premium cashews from SunRidge Farms:
· Organic Roasted and Salted Cashews – USDA- certified organic whole cashews are roasted to perfection in-house, then lightly tossed with sea salt.
· Thai Curry Roasted Cashews – Lightly roasted whole cashews are tossed with the exotic spices cumin, turmeric, paprika, and cayenne pepper.
· Sea Salt& Pepper Cashews – All natural, whole cashews are batch roasted in house and then tossed with sea salt and cracked black pepper.
I saved the Thai Curry Roasted Cashews for us later on, heehee. I loved them, but too many can get spicy. The Black Pepper Cashews weren't over powering with pepper, they were nice as well. As always the regular ones are always a hit.
