Cashews that make you smile

Cashews that make you smile

Apart from chocolate and sweets, what are some healthier foods that can help ease your mood? Surprisingly, even a small cashew nut has many beneficial effects. The cashew nut is so named because it looks like a kidney (also known as "yaozi" in Chinese), and it is one of the highly nutritious nuts.

Benefits of Cashew Nuts

Cashew nuts have many benefits, and the most famous one is improving cardiovascular health. Although cashew nuts appear to contain a lot of fat (up to 46.5%), most of the fat is unsaturated fatty acids, which are good fats. These include oleic acid, linoleic acid, and more, which can help improve coronary heart disease and high blood lipid levels. Cashew nuts also have a cholesterol-lowering effect and can lower triglycerides in the blood, making them highly beneficial for the heart and brain.

Cashews also contain tryptophan, which can reduce anxiety, nervousness, and improve sleep, helping you bid farewell to bad moods.

Eating Cashews

Cashews can be eaten directly or added to cooked dishes, such as stir-fried chicken with cashews, which is a common home-cooked dish. Adding cashews to soups or stews can also slightly soften the nuts and enhance the flavor of the dish. Cashews can also be used as a meat substitute in soups, creating a delicious and healthy dish. For example, our soups such as Dried Agrocybe Aegerita Mushroom Soup Packet, Dried Radix Ophiopogonis Soup Packet, Sichuan Fritillary Bulb Sea Coconut Soup Packet, Dried Yellow Fungus Blaze Mushroom Soup Packet, Ginseng Glehnia Root Soup Packet all use cashews as a meat substitute, making the soups even more delicious.

Eating cashews can benefit both your physical and mental health, and how could it not make you smile?
