Cashews

Day 8: Cashew Paradise

I am trying an experiment. Can I buy a container of cashews and only eat a few? In recent months, cashews became a “sugar substitute” for me and were creating such an over-eating problem, I banned them from my diet. Nuts are calorie-dense and fat-dense, best limited to a handful per day.
