I need help. I don't have a measuring cup or scale and I need to know approximately how many cashews are in 25grams. I bought a large bag of cashews and I want to know how many calories I'm consuming.... THANKS! Does 18 cashews = 30 grams sound accurate to you? http://www.health24.com/dietnfood/Healthy_foods/15-18-21-638.asp

What helped me in the past is seeing how many servings were in the container and then counting them out into that many piles and putting them in serving bags (sandwich or snack bags). Hope this is helpful.

Sounds right! I just went and weighed some of my cashews hehe. 18 cashes were 26 grams on my scale.

I would highly recommend buying a scale, it's really an essential item of equipment for counting calories, I'd be lost without one.

Not cashew related but I weighed out that 12 almonds is 30g. and about 177 cals. I'm too scared to eat them haha!

You'll get a few more in if they are raw than if they've been oiled and salted.

When you can fit it into the budget, it's great to have a food scale. Irregularly shaped objects like nuts can be tough to measure accurately without weighing them.

Shiet, I've been eating 6 cashews as 25grams, I guess I can get some more

Depends on whether they are normal weight, overweight, obese, or morbidly obese cashews.
