hurts like heaven cashew cheese spread


cashew nuts are kidney shaped seeds found at the bottom of the cashew apple. the nuts are the produced fruit of the cashew tree and a native to northern brazil. with a mild sweetness and smooth texture the cashew not only adds flavor and body to many raw/living food recipes, they also boost your mood and stabilize your thoughts to help fight depression. they contain oleic acid, the same heart-healthy fat that is found in olive oil, making them a key factor in maintaining proper cardiovascular health. this cashew spread is a cheese alternative that is high-raw, vegan, non-dairy, wheat and gluten free, requires little time to prepare and tastes great with practically everything.

find yourself feeling a little bit nervous? calm down, eat cashews and be sure to use your heart like a weapon!
