FOOD AS MEDICINE
Cashews are a great source of healthy fats paired with protein and a moderate dose of carbs, yet still very keto friendly as long as serving size is kept in check! Nuts are correlated with increased life expectancy and this may be due to their content of monounsaturated fats which improve vessel health and arginine which aids in dilating blood vessels decreasing blood pressure. They also provide a rich source of fat soluble antioxidants which aid in fighting against cancer and cognitive decline! Cashews are a source of copper, phosphorous, manganese, magnesium, and zinc. This snack mix is quick and easy to make and highlights turmeric as a potent anti-inflammatory spice known for its cancer fighting and detox supporting properties!
