Same here with pistachios. The problem is self-control. The solution is not buying them.

I don't hear much about cashews on the various paleo blogs I've looked at, and I'm wondering why. They're mighty tasty, and seem to stack up well against other nuts. For instance, compare 1 oz of cashews: Total Fat: 13.0g Saturated Fat:... (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!

I make my own almond milk. I dry the pulp in my dehydrator then throw it into the freezer to keep. I use it as I would almond flour and it works like a charm. (Sometimes I do a second grind if it's not fine enough for baking.)
