I come up short in magnesium and selenium.. Any tips on what to include in my diet? I was thinking crab for selenium and maybe some almonds for Mg?

I make a nettle leaf infusion every night to drink throughout the day (google Susun Weed for info). I add squirts of liquimims brand Mega-Mag 400 mg and drink it throughout the day.

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?

Nuts require thorough mastication to be more digestible. Chew your food! If you really like almonds, and prefer to get E and such from almonds, then unroasted almond butter would probably be a good choice.

No, don't listen to the scare tactics. Nuts like almonds are a great source of nutrition (especially magnesium and vitamin E, which are pretty scarce in most diets). Anyone who likes nuts and isn't allergic should eat a lot of them. In general,... (more)
