Cashew nuts are high in monounsaturated oleic acid (fats) to protect the heart and circulatory system but lower in fat than most nuts. Regularly eating nuts (unsalted) is linked with a considerably lower risk of dying from heart disease. They also contain magnesium for strong bones and heart health, zinc to boost the immune system and iron for healthy blood.
Nutritional yeast offers a cheesy nutty taste high in protein, fibre and many B vitamins which help the body extract energy from food, help to produce red blood cells and stabilise blood sugar levels. Most types are boosted with B12 which is usually found exclusively in animal products so making it ideal for vegetarians and vegans. A lack of this vitamin is associated with tiredness, fatigue and weakness. Nutritional yeast is actually a complete protein source containing nine amino acids which are needed by the body through diet to support every single aspect of cell growth, repair and helping to form antibodies.
