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)
Okay so i'm new to the forum so hello! :) but here's my question. Is it possible to eat too many nuts (almonds) I realized I do eat a lot of almonds trying to get my calories filled in before bed by snacking on nuts usually about 3 servings so... (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 love nuts. They are filling, crunchy, tasty and just plain different than most things I eat while on a strict Paleo diet. Which types are the best? Currently I eat about a cup of either marcoa almonda, walnuts or cashews about every other day.... (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)
My work schedule requires me to lift between 530 and 8 pm but I don't eat after 10pm or so, so I like to eat at least something in the afternoon before training. Normally I eat an ounce or so of almonds and drink some BCAA closer to the gym... (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.
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)
Hi everyone :) Today I made my own almond milk for the first time and it's turned out brilliantly, but I'm wondering if I can use the leftover blended and strained almond-y mess to make anything with. I thought I'd check here before I just throw... (more)
I make my own almond milk. I dry the pulp in my dehydrator then throw it into the freezer to keep. I use it as I would almond flour and it works like a charm. (Sometimes I do a second grind if it's not fine enough for baking.)
Ok,so i'm new to this.Peanuts are worse than almonds because they have a higher amounts of lectins?Even roasted peanuts?Can you tell I don't want to give up my beloved peanut butter?No seriously I am trying to better understand the difference. (more)
My boyfriend and I eat a lot of almonds. He uses nut butter as a way to refuel after tough workouts (I don't, I hate almond butter and other nut butters are too expensive) and I use an almond/coconut flour as a coating for the faux-fried foods I... (more)
Hi, I did do a search in the forum about Raw Milk but couldn't find a subject that exactly matched what I am looking for. First of all I am aware of the benefits of Raw Milk, coincidentally I drank a lot as a child as my godfather ran a local... (more)
My child has been have stomach pains ever since switching to Paleo. The only things we have changed with our eating is the removal of all grains and the addition of almond flour and coconut flour. In order to make the transistion easier I have... (more)
Yeah, I have trouble with almonds and almond flour. My mother has the same issues with coconut flour. I would suggest that rice based foods are the gentlest for transitioning off gluten-based baked goods. Nut milks have always worked OK for me... (more)
I know people have mixed feelings about almond butter... lots of omega6s, ok in moderation if you're not trying to lose weight, etc. Assuming you want to eat some.... raw or roasted?
