How Can Cashew Ricotta Cheese Make You Feel Great?
Lighten the LoadMany cheeses can leave you feeling heavy and sluggish and dairy products can be difficult to digest. This recipe is a nourishing substitute for those prone to congestion after eating traditional ricotta or other dairy cheeses. The addition of basil and lemon adds a diaphoretic element, stimulating the circulatory system and the removal of toxins. They are also known for their decongestant properties relieving any excess mucus, particularly in the lungs. You'll feel light and clear after this dish.
Build & EnergizeThis dish is heavy, sweet and anabolic in nature, building strength, stamina and energizing the body. Cashews are a rich source of magnesium, supporting the development and growth of healthy bones, muscles and tissues. But do be aware these heavy, sweet nuts are best combined with the digestive aids used in this recipe to add a light, fresh element to the ricotta and ease digestion.
Stimulate DigestionBasil and oregano are warming, rustic herbs used to stimulate digestion while burning away accumulated toxins. The pungency of these herbs will leave your stomach feeling light after a creamy 'cheese' dish and give this ricotta some bite. The sour squeeze of lemon will further stimulate the release of digestive enzymes and offer a tangy twist.
