5 Reasons Why You Need The Cashew Nut In Your Life January 15, 2018

by Eat

Nowadays, it seems like the cashew nut is popping up everywhere. It’s even being reimaged as other foods—cashew milk, cashew cheese, cashew ice cream, cashew mayo (the verdict’s still out about that one). So we did a little digging to find out why this nut is having a major moment right now, and why it tastes so amazing in dishes like next week’s Orange and Cashew Chicken Stir-Fry.

1. Cashew nuts give your immune system a boost

Nobody likes a sick day (unless it’s a “sick day” to finish binge watching). So keep germs at bay by munching on cashews between episodes. They contain magnesium and zinc, amongst other things, which help fight those icky airbornes.

2. They help keep skin and hair looking vibrant

Our bodies’ enzymes need copper to help give skin and hair pigment. Who knew? Luckily, the cashew nut can help add to those copper levels. Now, if only we could figure out a way for them to color our hair, too.

3. They even help your heart

Just like our go-to ingredient olive oil, the cashew nuts contain oleic acid, which has been known to prevent heart disease.

4. Cashew nuts help to energize the body

And let’s be real, who couldn’t use a little extra energy to help get them through the day? Cashew nuts contain thiamine, which the body uses to convert sugar to energy. We really only have one question here…how many cashews are too many cashews?! Asking for a friend.

5. They taste so darn good

We love a good added benefit, but the truth is, what we love most about cashew nuts is how delicious they are. Whether eaten raw, sipped as a milk, or crunched to add texture to a dish, there really is no bad way to incorporate them into your meal routine.

And while we stand by the fact that there is no bad way, we do believe there is a best way to enjoy them. Enter our Orange and Cashew Chicken Stir-Fry with Bell Pepper & Jasmine Rice. It has a beautiful glazed cashew garnish that’s out of this world, giving you a chance to impress the fam with your better-than-takeout twist on a classic. Order it now to get the simple recipe and pre-measured ingredients delivered to your doorstep next week. And in the meantime, get excited by watching it all come to life.
