Go Nuts: Three Solid Reasons why Cashews are Bomb for your Bod 

Let’s talk about snacks. (something near and dear to my heart)
Cashews are one of my favorite snacks because of how filling  and tasty they are and how easily they store in my car’s middle compartment (readily available to snack on while passing up stopping at Chick- fil-a during traffic).

-But you couldn’t you just snack on any nuts?-

This is true, but here are some reasons why I choose cashews over other nuts:

1. Lower in fat than other nuts (we all want good fats, but not too much right? but of course! )

2. Contain a larger percentage of monounsaturated fats which is beneficial for optimal heart functioning by lowering LDL cholesterol

3. Substantial source of essential minerals like copper, zinc and selenium (all necessary cofactors for important metabolic processes)
