FOOD AS MEDICINE HEALTH TIPS — CASHEWS
Cashews are packed with anti-cancer compounds that have the ability to “starve tumors and stop cancer cells from dividing”.
Cashews are high in protein and are rich in vitamin B-complex and essential minerals such as iron, selenium, and zinc. Beneficial in lowering blood pressure, preventing heart attacks, preventing gallstones, reducing the frequency of migraines, providing energy boosts, strengthening bones, and promoting healthy skin and hair.
Cashews are best eaten raw and unsalted.
To replace heavy cream, use 1 cup of cashews and soak them in hot water for 30 minutes. Soaking makes the flavor of the cream more neutral and pleasant. You can also soak in cold water overnight instead. Drain the cashews and place them in a blender or food processor. Add 1 1/2 cups of clean pure water, and blend till creamy. Place in an airtight container and refrigerate or use right away!
