Almonds have overstayed their welcome; it’s time to share the spotlight – cashews. Although they are the lowest in fiber amongst other members of the tree nut family, cashews are an excellent source of other important nutrients. They’re rich in iron and zinc, which is important in the production of healthy oxygen while zinc boosts the immune system. Not to mention, one ounce of cashews pack a greater protein punch than several other nuts, including hazelnuts, macadamias, pecans, and walnuts – you’ll get a mighty five grams of protein per 18 cashews! With the holiday season right around the corner, we’ve created some festive treats that feature cashews as the star ingredient, and that friends and family will surely go nuts for!
