Hi guys, I need some advice/reassurance just to make me feel a little bit better. I'm in my very early stage of recovering from anorexia (actually more ortorexia + anorexia athletica = speaking human: extreme restriction and exercising three times... (more)
Well what do you think is going on? You're hungry! GO get your macadamia butter and whatever you crave, you don't have to skip your work out if you like it, muscle mass is always a good thing. Good luck!
Looking for some n=1 accounts of macadamia nut consumption. I know I've gotten carried away before and eaten quite a bit and felt icky but even then I'm not sure it was the nuts or the excess. In theory, they're an excellent food source. Also... (more)
These bars were my favourite on the go snack. They were low sugar, sweetened with honey, loaded with fat from macadamia and coconut, and delicious. I thought I had found the perfect paleo snack - the world is cruel.
I was very disappointed in costco today, their bulk canisters of Macadamias disappeared, and the staff says it has gone inactive at all stores. This was a staple PALEO snack of mine and especially wanted it for the holidays. It would be much more... (more)
In terms of boosting HDL cholesterol and protecting the heart, are there any differences between raw macadamias and roasted? Are the monounsaturated fats damaged by the roasting process? Also, macadamia's contain saturated fats - anyone know... (more)
Does anyone know what the phytic acid content of macadamias is? I have been looking everywhere but I haven't found a thing. They are the only nut that doesn't seem to give me any digestive issues at all.
There's some concern that stovetop cooking with Olive oil at best destroys the healthful benefits, other than Omega-3 fatty acids, and at worst creates toxic compounds. I tried chicken broth and it sort of works but burns quickly. I was curious... (more)
I have seen a lot of questions circulating about nuts, particularly macadamias. I apologize if this has been asked already, but if I were to buy a years worth of of macadamias (pretty much only nut I eat) in bulk online (I calculate that to be 7... (more)
I recently ordered two 1lb roasted unsalted macadamia nuts online, only to find out they're roasted with cottonseed oil/canola oil SHUDDER I was like CRAP. Can't return it since I already opened one bag and returning one small bag would be a big... (more)
This is my 4th week doing paleo. Currently I am eating lacto-paleo (raw cream, raw cultured butter and Ghee). Mostly grassfed meat/ fats (coconut and dairy mentioned above) and some greens. I am trying to heal my gut from years of low fat/no red... (more)
Nuts personally stalled my weight loss. I had to cut all forms of them and fruits now, ecept I eat Tomato (technically a fruit). What percentage of your daily intake is carbs?
I know that a lot of Paleos and Low-Carbers use almond flour as breading for poultry, meat and fish. I was curious about a few things before I dive into preparing fried fish/oysters, fried chicken, wienerschnitzel, chicken fried steak, tempura,... (more)
Similar to http://paleohacks.com/questions/7728/where-can-i-buy-affordable-mufa-nuts-hazelnuts-pecan-macadamia-cashew, but I'm interested in raw data specifically for macadamia. Price per lb: Where you buy them: (more)
In Australia, we pay about $20 per kilo, or ~$10 per pound. If you go for organic nuts at specialty shops, the price is quite a bit higher. And for people living in Queensland, the price can be very low, in pick-your-own situations.
For the past prolly two years i have been using Bionaturae http://www.bionaturae.com/oil.html About a week ago though i got a large bottle of Spectrum Organic Mediterranean Olive Oil. It was on sale. Anyway, holy shit, this stuff is ridiculously... (more)
I like Trader Joe's CA Estate EVOO. I think it's about 6 bucks and extremely flavorful with a spicy backbite that's indicative of high polyphenols. Good stuff.
Sorry about another stupid question, but here it goes... I am currently on all-meat diet due to SIBO bacteria reduction. I have just finished my antibiotics and I am doing surprisingly well on my all meat diet. If somebody told me that even six... (more)
What are your thoughts on Macadamia Meal? Is there anything wrong with it? It seems pretty nutritionally sound and won't upset the Omega-3 to Omega-6 ratio in a balanced diet. I'm yet to try it. Thinking of having it for breakfast, with fruit... (more)
