Turmeric Roasted Cashews

My favorite kind of snacks are those that are easy to bring with me wherever I go! With a busy work schedule, healthy hacks like these are vital in order to having successful days. These roasted cashews are one of my favorites to prepare – they have the perfect roasted flavor. Don’t like the taste of turmeric? The sesame oil and seeds are really the star of the show here, all while getting the anti-inflammatory benefits of the turmeric behind the scenes. I love to keep a bag of these with me on the go for an emergency bite. Happy snacking!
