I make a nettle leaf infusion every night to drink throughout the day (google Susun Weed for info). I add squirts of liquimims brand Mega-Mag 400 mg and drink it throughout the day.
I have major issues with almonds. I constantly crave them and if I start eating them I can't stop, I can go through a whole bag of raw almonds or an entire jar of almond butter in one sitting. I know I'm intolerant to them cause I almost always... (more)

Raw almond problems along with whole foods freshly ground almond butter problem details: Boy oh boy are raw almonds to die for! I've been keeping them in the house as an emergency food to ward of cheating. That worked for about 7 month with... (more)
Does it have to do with the freshness of the almonds? Where they were grown? How they were grown? The type of almonds?
Does anyone know if the nutrients in nuts are bioavailable? Does roasting make them more so? According to the nutrient tracker I use i'm often low on vitamin E, magnesium & manganese, but a big handful of almonds helps to bump the RDA% of... (more)
Nuts require thorough mastication to be more digestible. Chew your food! If you really like almonds, and prefer to get E and such from almonds, then unroasted almond butter would probably be a good choice.
I often hear that walnuts are not paleo because of their high omega 6 content. Instead we should focus on macadamias and cashews. I see that the latter's omega6/3 ratio is better. But what is the evolutionary argument? Did Grok not eat all nuts?... (more)
Has anyone had an issue with too much vitamin E or other vitamins? I got almonds, spinach, and blueberries this weekend (all of which are rich in vitamin E) and have been breaking out in yellow splotches- just a few about the size of a quarter on... (more)
I know that similar but not exact questions have been asked before, but I would like some fresh perspective. I average about a handful of almonds a day. Sometimes I feel like they make a good snack or can round out a meal nicely. The rest of my... (more)
So I'm curious about your experiences with almonds? I've been consuming about 2 ounces a day of whole natural almonds and am wondering if its the culprit for why my loss has stalled. Ive eliminated all dairy and saw that I was able to drop a few... (more)
Why don't nutrition labels have reflect what's on the websites and peoples references like nutritiondata.self? For example the almonds I eat don't list anything about Vitamin E or Magnesium in them? According to... (more)
Hi paleo friends , today i'm very depressed. I entered paleo 5 months ago for my ibs , and I have to say that cutting off grains/dairies and legumes my ibs went 70% better then previous. However I will start a specific pale_SIBO diet with a paleo... (more)

I have IC which is pretty much inflammation and thinning of the bladder lining. You wouldn't think it but the main cause for pain in those with IC is trigger foods. I still get the pain but refuse to pop pain pills everyday like i used to do. I've... (more)
Almonds are fine. Just get them as fresh as you can and enjoy.
So overeating almonds is bad because it'll throw your Omega 3 to 6 ratio off. And this is bad because consumption of too much Omega 6 is correlated with inflammation; yet almonds are an anti-inflammatory food source? And does anyone have a... (more)
I can't seem to find a clear, scientific answer on why to eat Raw nuts or to eat Roasted nuts. I realize each different type of nut may have a slightly different answer, but with regards to health, nutrient absorption and generally speaking from... (more)
To be honest, I don't usually care for nuts. But I found that the Trader Joe's unshelled pistachio nuts were to die for... almost literally... and I rampaged through the bag in no time flat. And ended up nearly destroying my gut (short term, I... (more)
Same here with pistachios. The problem is self-control. The solution is not buying them.
I don't hear much about cashews on the various paleo blogs I've looked at, and I'm wondering why. They're mighty tasty, and seem to stack up well against other nuts. For instance, compare 1 oz of cashews: Total Fat: 13.0g Saturated Fat:... (more)
I would roughly estimate that 1 out of every 50 almonds that I encounter is "bad." By this I mean that when I first bite into one, my mouth is immediately assaulted by a strong chemical taste, like amaretto gone wrong. The degree of badness... (more)
I've been paleo for several months now, but for the past few weeks I've been craving almonds and other nuts, but especially almonds. Does this indicate a possible deficiency in some nutrient? I have yet to run my diet through FitDay and see if... (more)
I was wondering if anyone eats almonds somewhat regularly and has had any kidney stones or has any information about a correlation with this because almonds have a large amount of oxalates and I have a theory that there could be a correlation.... (more)
