Raw cashews are brain boosters. They contain thiamine, which enhances memory — similar to the herb gingko biloba.
Nutritional yeast is loaded with B vitamins, including B12 which is harder for vegans and vegetarians to source. It has a very delightful, cheese-like flavor and also works well on air-popped corn and pasta or spiralized zucchini dishes. I add it to soup and blended salad smoothies.
This snack takes only moments to prepare (aside from soaking the cashews for 1 hour to soften them slightly – be careful not to oversoak — 2 hours maximum.) Carry these to work with you or to have after a workout.
Remember, when you take a few extra minutes to prepare these healthy snacks, you are less vulnerable to fast food and packaged, processed snacks from convenience stores.
