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)

How paleo am I? I break it down according to 70% hunt-and-gather behavior, 20% meat eating, and 10% exclusion of modern processed foods. So adding up the score, I get 86%, or a B+. I grade myself 90% on the first, 90% on the second, and 50% on... (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)

Peanuts are legumes -- sure. But should a botantical classification that was invented by man be considered infallible? For me, peas, string beans, peanuts -- all of which are legumes -- do not pose a problem for me, and I consume them. ... (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)

I use PB2 occasionally when I have a mad chocolate and peanut butter craving. I've never eaten it plain (my husband said it tasted funny), but I mix it with Kerrygold butter, coconut oil, cocoa powder and a bit of honey then let it set up in the... (more)

My friend's have a 1 year old and just found out he has a peanut allergy. Not sure of the severity, but is there any way they can at least reduce the reactions if there is incidental contact with it? edit: They found out about the allergy from... (more)

A peanut allergy is nothing to fool around with. It can be life-threatening. The more exposures, the more severe the reaction can be (at least from the stories I have read.) Anaphalactic shock is not fun (from personal experience, eating 1/2 of... (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)

No seriously I am trying to better understand the difference. Raw nuts and nut butters are ridiculously tasty. Peanuts aren't and make no sense.

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)

Aside from the argument of lectin content and omega 3-6 ratios, why can I not consume peanuts or peanut butter when adopting the Paleo lifestyle? It seems to me their "naughtiness" is over-hyped. Regarding peanut oil, is it actually made from... (more)

If it doesn't irritate your digestion and you're getting plenty of Omega 3, I don't think Organic peanut butter with the pure peanut oil drained is that bad. A lot of the carbohydrate is fiber and from a quality source, I think there are far... (more)

Nope, just all around bad for you, eat real nuts if you're craving the, but try to avoid them. I find people who eat nuts eat a lot and it affects their omega ratio (too much omega 6).

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)

absolutely not. a big fat NO on boiled peanuts. you are boiling way too much PUFA, damaging it for sure. also, peanuts are still legumes, which come naturally packed with a host of unpleasant things. See this discussion here for more info. (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)

For me, peanuts (and also pine nuts) generally cause breakouts. I've always assumed that my body is trying to eliminate some component of the food that's bad for me: eliminate it through my skin, that is. (However, that leaky gut reference that... (more)
