Hi Kingsley,

At first glance I did not recognize the fruit, but it apparently is a fruit that I like. In my country, the fruit is also known as the monkey fruit 🙂 , because the form of seed at the bottom of fruit is similar to tail of little monkey.

I saw Silk (the nut milk company) came out with a new cashew milk. Does anyone know the difference between eating raw cashews vs. drinking the milk, in terms of health benefits?

Cashews are definitely a very good source of healthy fats just like many other types of nuts. They are essential for any diet especially when you are trying to build muscle or lose fat. I like your article and will probably write one up on my blog about nuts in generals. Thanks for the great read Kingsley.
