Goa is famous for the production of cashew nuts. Whether roasted, salted or covered in chocolate, the
cashew nut, often used as a flavorful complement to appetizers, main dishes and desserts, packs a mix
of nutrients and minerals not found in many common foods.

week, unless you need to gain weight - then you can add two more servings to your weekly intake.
