Food and Recipe of the Month: Creamy Cashews

Care of Amy Symington of Ameliaeats.com Creamy, dreamy cashews are a plant based diet’s best friend and for good reason. They help to easily replace a cornucopia of otherwise dairy based products like milk, cheese, cheesecake, and cream toppings, fillings, sauces, and spreads. They are also delicious all on their own or try them dry roasted with a sprinkle of salt. No matter how you like your cashews though, know that they also contain many vital nutrients that our bodies require for optimal health. They contain high levels of fibre, protein, magnesium, copper, and healthy mono- and poly-unsaturated fats.
