Just got a bunch of them from hubby's business trip in Indonesia. They're also called bogor peanuts, but don't taste like peanuts at all. Other than this wikipedia article, I can't find much nutritional information about it. Thanks! (more)
Hello Everyone, I am new to Paleo, and need some more information on peanuts. I have been to several websites, all which contain varying information on peanuts. Are peanuts considered Paleo? If not, why are they bad? I really appreciate any... (more)
[Yes, yes, I know. "Peanuts aren't paleo." "Just eat whole, unprocessed foods." "Try almond/cashew/macadamia nut butter." "I'm going to answer not the question you asked, but the one I want to answer." I just want some help grading this... (more)
In contemplating trying for a baby sometime soon I have been thinking about food allergies and intolerances. What got me thinking initially was the evidence from my own diet - and anecdotes from fellow Paleohackers - about how progressively ill we... (more)
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)
I am wondering why, despite their high monounsaturated fat content, peanuts are being vilified by many who espouse a paleo diet? This food source is Cheap and a starving student needs food! Is it the Omega ratio again(6:3; preponderance in favour... (more)

It is peanut season down here and that means boiled peanuts, one of my favorite foods. I have gotten mixed messages about peanuts and I was wondering what people thought. On the plus side boiled peanuts are made fresh, the green peanuts you... (more)

Probably the best way to consume peanuts is through your mouth. It it true that I once attempted a peanut enema, but I don't want to enter into details about that part of my life here. Let's just say it wan't pretty.
I've been reading a lot of articles lately that seem to be leaning more towards letting children try things like dairy, peanuts, and other allergenic foods earlier instead of the previously held opinion that they should be held off until after one... (more)
Yeah I read this article in the New Yorker that talked about how Israel has almost no peanut allergies and some think it's because they let children eat a lot of peanuts. But then in Sweden you have decreasing gluten allergies after gluten was... (more)
