Spicy Turmeric CashewsFeatured


Did you know that just 6 cashews a day may make you 21% less likely to die from cancer?
Sound nuts? Read the Prevention Magazine article. It's good to know that just 10 grams of fresh nuts per day is all it takes to prevent some major disease.  Adding turmeric makes them healthy and delicious.  Beware, tho- these nuts will turn your fingers YELLOW, so you cannot hide the fact that you snitched them.

This recipe was adapted from the blog 101 Cookbooks by Heidi Swanson, who we highly recommend her blog and cookbooks.  Her recipes always 'work', taste great and her photographs are stunning. She was inspired by recipes in a new book on the healty gut.  Find the book here: The Good Gut: Taking Control of your Weight, Your Mood and Your Long-Term Health
