Optimized for Great Health and Weight

This sauce is as healthy as it is simple.

Only whole plant ingredients to guarantee that you eat as healthy as possible.

Oil-free to keep your arteries clean and your weight in check.

The cashew nuts pack plant sterols and healthy fats which help you absorb nutrients better and supply you with energy for a longer period of time to prevent overeating.

Add to that garlic, which is rich in antioxidants and organosulfur compounds that detoxify the cells and prevent cancers. It is also rich in flavonoids which help you lose weight.

Nutritional yeast is one of the complete sources of B vitamins and probiotics.

And we also have fresh dill, super nutrient-dense, rich in antioxidants and micronutrients to help prevent hunger and foster great health.

How to store

Once prepared, store the cashew sauce in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days. If you add fresh herbs, like dill to the sauce, use it within 3 days.

It may thicken slightly while refrigerated so add just a little bit of water if needed.
