Cashews are packed with soluble dietary fiber, vitamins, minerals. Adding them to stir-fries, curries and nut loaves gives savoury dishes a nutty flavour. You could also sprinkle them over desserts. Cashews also increase the healthy fats in your diet, as they contain ?heart-friendly? monounsaturated fatty acids like oleic and palmitoleic acids that help to lower bad LDL cholesterol and increase good HDL cholesterol. You can have some every day as a satisfying snack.
