The creamy cilantro and cashew sauce is insanely awesome and very cleansing as well (perfect for Spring). Cilantro is a raw food detox fave. It’s amazing at pulling heavy metals from the body, so it’s fabulous for weight loss (check out the post I wrote about the connection between toxins, the liver and weight loss, here).
