Photo Hunters: CURVY

Cashew nuts



Go Nuts!

Nothing nutty about it — these notoriously high fat snacks have the potential to promote heart health. A past Harvard study, reported in the September 2006 issue of Longevity, found that women who ate at least 142g of nuts a week, were 35% less likely to have a heart attack than those who ate less than 28g a month.

In addition, nuts have lots of protein, fiber, healthy monounsaturated fats, vitamins, nutrients, and antioxidants. Therefore, nuts deserve a honored spot in the kitchen of every healthy eater (as long as you're not allergic, of course). Stick to the raw, unsalted variety.

Great curvy shot! I'm not a big fan of cashews myself, but my guy LOVES them. :)

They are indeed curvy and now that you mention it, I think I'll go have some cashews to promote good health. To be honest I keep them on hand because I like the way they taste.

Cashew nuts is more expensive than peanuts, at least here in the Philippines. Maybe 50% more expensive . I love cashew nuts though. Good to the bite. :)

I use lightly salted cashews and mix them with with almonds and peanuts (both unsalted) and a single bag of M$Ms. That bit of salt is enough for me to prevent the effects of Hyponatremia (low sodium) and coming upon the occasional M&M takes care of any chocolate craving without downing a whole Hershey bar.

Good curves!
