Just like fish, nuts have loads of health benefits. Let’s look at cashews in particular, and why you should make cashew crusted salmon tonight.
You probably know that there is a difference between “good fats” and “bad fats.” Cashews are a food that contains monounsaturated fat, which is one of the good fats. According to the American Heart Association, when consumed in moderation, monounsaturated fats can help lower the level of bad cholesterol in your blood. As a result, they also help reduce your risk of heart disease and stroke.
They’re loaded with protein.
Good sources of protein are essential to your diet. Protein is the basic building block of many parts of your body, including your muscles, skin, bones, hair, nails, and cartilage. Your body uses protein both to grow new cells and to repair damage to tissue. For example, increasing the amount of protein in your diet can help strengthen your hair and nails, as they are almost completely made of protein.
They’re full of antioxidants.
We’ve all heard about antioxidants and that they’re a good thing. But many of us are unsure what they actually are. The simplest way to explain it is that antioxidants are substances found in certain foods that help prevent or delay some cell damage in your body. Cashews contain antioxidants that can reduce your risk of developing heart disease and even some cancers.
