Parmesan and Rosemary Cashews

These are so moreish and delish. You can increase or decrease the seasoning as you like, or you could try some other herbs and spices.

If you have healthy snacks on hand, you are more likely to eat healthy and eat for your mood. Nuts and seeds are a great snack to eat every day. They are full to the brim of vital nutrients needed for brain health – depending on the nut or seed. Cashews are a great source of tryptophan, our serotonin building block, essential fats and magnesium. They are also rich in iron, selenium, zinc and B vitamins.

Try making a fresh batch of flavoured nuts and seeds each week to keep a bit of variety in your diet. You can always freeze them, so you have some on hand at all times.

I don’t eat much dairy. In fact, it’s very rare for me to eat it. But once in a while a little good quality cheese is a nice treat.
