It's a few extra calories, but otherwise doesn't really matter.

That's fine. Just look for raw nuts next time. Now you know which ones to avoid. Don't beat yourself up over it.

You've probably gotten lots of the benefits of a paleo diet, and you've also done the hard work of rebalancing your macronutrients and getting off of lots of other non-paleo foods. Peanut oil isn't going to undo any of that.

Anyway, be kind to yourself. You found out you made an error (and maybe learned a lesson about reading labels carefully), and fixed it. That's pretty good.

Don't worry, I think a lot of people do that. Especially with those lovely costco giant mixed nuts containers... It's a process of learning! if you don't like raw nuts, look for dry roasted.
