Like most nuts cashews are packed with nutrients, but also high in calories. Fortunately, it only takes a small amount of cashews to add satisfying crunch and flavor to a salad or stir fry.
Cashews can be blended to make a nut butter, spread or dip or added to a smoothie for a rich and creamy treat.
Cashews are a good source of calcium, magnesium, iron, zinc and folic acid. One ounce of raw cashews (about 18 nuts) contains approximately 160 calories.
