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 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)
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)
