The Feel- Good Element:

People are often of the opinion that nuts and avocados make you gain weight, because of their high amount of fat. In fact, they have been found to remain a stable weight and even aid in weight loss. Both avocado and cashew nuts are rich in healthy fats, which, besides supporting heart health, help your metabolism function properly and burn fat (as long as you eat a healthy amount J). Both of these are rich in antioxidants, support healthy skin and eyesight.

By the way the avocado- cashew cream also works well on sandwiches, wraps or as a salad sauce.
