Coconut Curry Roasted Cashews

The best thing about the Whole 30 is the nuts. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Hands down.

I’m not a big fan of restrictions, like the no grains for instance, but I do like abundance, and the Whole 30 allows that in spades. As much healthy fat as you want. They do recommend a limit on almonds and dried fruits, but cashews, macadamias, avocados are all on the ‘yes’ list.

Boom.

Usually, for me nuts go hand in hand with sweetness, so I wanted to switch things up and make a something savoury to snack on.

Enter these Coconut Curry Roasted Cashews. Cashews are so buttery they can stand up to the heat of spices like curry making them a match made in Whole 30 heaven. Adding in chia seeds gave little pops of crunch for even more texture.

It’s funny. I remember back in the day I never would have eaten curry anything. My tastebuds were so damaged from years of smoking and I just didn’t ever venture out of my comfort zone, which ironically was comfort foods. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Lots of pastas in cream sauce, pizza, and even chips for dinner happened more times than it should have.

Today when we were out on a walk (thank you sunshine for finally showing up in Burlington!), Joe commented that I was like a changed person. In a good way, of course. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Not one to throw compliments around, I felt quite misty-eyed at him acknowledging all of my efforts and accomplishments. But, he is right. I am a changed person.

Before, it was processed pasta dinners or delivery and out drinking/smoking.

Now?

Now, I cook meals from scratch, and drink green smoothies or Bulletproof coffee. I hit the gym, not because of a never-ending quest to be skinny, but to strengthen my body so I’ll remain functional in my later years, of which I’m expecting many.

It was a decision I made after years of abusing my body without really knowing it. After quitting smoking and really looking at the labels of the food I was buying, I just finally made that connection. And it’s been lasting. For me, almost ten years now and holding strong. I feel younger, stronger and more radiant than I did in my twenties. Seriously. Don’t tell yourself that it’s too late. It’s a lifestyle change, yes, but such a good one. There are only benefits.

    1. Thanks so much! Good luck with the Whole 30. I found it to be pretty painless. I DID totally OD on cashews and coconut though. ๐Ÿ˜‰
