  • Cashews.

    April 19, 2022 1 min read

    In moderation and in respect to individual constitution, cashews can provide a number of health benefits. They are known to have good levels of magnesium, B6 and zinc ✨

    From an Ayurvedic perspective we consider cashews to be less suitable for many clients in comparison to other legumes, nuts and seeds. The creamy, heavy and oily texture of cashews can be more difficult to digest and increase AMA, digestive toxins, in those without a strong digestive fire

    But we need healthy fats! Therefore it is so important that we eat these fats correctly.

    Be aware ✖️ cashews in their raw and unprocessed state can harbour bacteria that can lead to allergic reactions.

    How to avoid these reactions? We suggest soaking and dry roasting all cashews before consumption. Favour only organic, activated and soaked cashews. Avoid raw, salted and cashews processed with vegetable fats.

    We have a number of recipes with cashews, including our poha recipe!

    We would love to hear from you - What are some of your favourite cashew recipes?
