That's Nuts!... Or Is It?

While most people think of cashews as nuts, they are actually a fleshy fruit. The nut we eat is the seed that grows outside of the fruit. After being picked, the cashew shell has a toxic oil that can cause blisters on your skin, like poison ivy. Before they are shelled, they are treated by roasting, boiling, or steaming. While cashews are high in calories, they are low in carbohydrates. Cashews can also help improve the production of red blood cells in the body because they contain a high amount of iron and copper.
