If you have to ask, the answer is yes. Really wish paleo rule #1 was 'eat a varied diet.'

Does it have to do with the freshness of the almonds? Where they were grown? How they were grown? The type of almonds?

I often hear that walnuts are not paleo because of their high omega 6 content. Instead we should focus on macadamias and cashews. I see that the latter's omega6/3 ratio is better. But what is the evolutionary argument? Did Grok not eat all nuts?... (more)

Not all culinary nuts are available to eat raw or unprocessed. For example, cashews are always at least steamed, if not roasted, as they contain a poisonous film on them. In order of awesomeness, though: raw > processed > roasted > salted Salt... (more)

Not every single omega-6 you consume is inflammatory. Omega-6s are ESSENTIAL Fatty Acids. They are only inflammatory after a certain point. If your O3 intake is good, that also keeps O6s in check. Different O6s fatty acids do different things.... (more)

I think this is where the nuts oxidise and go rancid -keeping them in the freezer is supposed to reduce this! Don't eat the rancid ones!
