"It's NOT just about the food....it's personal!"

Honey Roasted Cashews

Ok, I admit it!  The snack monster chases after me most nights too!  So what’s a girl to do?  Well, the first thing I do is toddle into my kitchen and whip up a batch of these  seriously delicious Honey Roasted Cashews!!!

They are decadently sweet, but by using natural sugars and paired with the protein from the cashews, there’s no spike in my blood sugar.

Speaking of protein, yup, cashews are loaded, plus they also provide abundant amounts of anti-oxidants, vitamins and minerals.  They are also great for brain health!  Don’t know about you, but keeping my brain function healthy is something I’m seriously interested in!

This delish recipe is found on page 7 of my recently published cookbook, Healthy Holidays with the Unconventional Foodie.  It is one of 52 amazing, full-color recipes that you are sure to LOVE!  You can pick up the book HERE.

If you’re looking for something a little more basic, check out my starting off point, Lightly Salted Roasted Cashews.  Or for something more savory, check out my healthy Thai Curry Roasted Cashews!

All recipes are diabetic and heart healthy and quite a few are gluten-free and vegan.  There’s something for everyone!  After all, EVERY DAY is a holiday!
