Cashews Help Treat Diabetes

The cashew nut is a popular snack, and its rich flavor means it's often eaten without treatment, lightly salted or sugared. Cashews are a staple in vegan diets. They are utilized as a base in sauces and gravies, and can take on sweet properties for frostings and cookies. They are high in protein and a raw, natural source of energy. The fats and oils in cashew nuts are 54% monounsaturated fat, 18% polyunsaturated fat, and 16% saturated fat (9% palmitic acid and 7% stearic acid). Without any cholesterol cashew nuts are a healthy fat food for heart patients too. And because of their high amounts of monounsaturated fatty acids, additionally, they help support healthy numbers of good (HDL) cholesterol.
Here below is a 4 serving recipe for "The Cashew Curry" made in 45 minutes with a wok or frying pan, a wooden spoon and the following ingredients:

  • 1 pound whole cashews
  • 2 T organic extra-virgin olive oil
  • 5 shallots, thinly sliced
  • 5 curry leaves
  • 2-in little bit of lemongrass or zest of just one lemon
  • 1 T coriander
  • 1 t turmeric
  • 1 t salt
  • 2 chiles, thinly sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 slices ginger
  • 15 oz unsweetened coconut milk
  • 2 T cilantro, chopped
Sauté the shallots in the oil, stirring occasionally, until golden, about ten mins. Add the curry, lemon, turmeric, chiles, garlic, ginger, and salt, and cook until fragrant, 5-10 minutes. Add remaining ingredients and simmer until thickened, another 5-10 minute. Remove curry leaves and serve, with diabetic rice or brown rice.
