I have been tweaking my diet for a while and I think I pretty much got it (with your help - thank you all). I just need a couple final adjustments.
I would really really appreciate if you could spend a minute or two to answer my question:
Even if you do not eat any, I would be very grateful if you could explain why - a very short answer will do.
I am not interested in oils, only seeds and nuts for now. Thanks again!!!
I would like to ask people not to down vote anybody - it is just a survey, everybody is different.
I eat almost no nuts or seeds. They are a good transition food when leaving SAD. However nuts are high in PUFAs.
Almost none. Way too snackable for me, so I don't keep any in the house. The only time I've had nuts in recent memory was when I was served a tiny packet of peanuts on my last flight.
No nuts or seeds for me.
Phytic acid blocks the absorption of minerals. Omega 6 "causes troubles everywhere". The fats are inferior to beef fat, butter, and cream. And the carbs are not nearly as satisfying as egg yolks or liver.
I need all my food to be the best nourishment I can get for the money and the calories.
Cashews, daily, maybe 1.5 ounces.
Pecans, 2-3 times per week, maybe .5 ounce each time.
Macadamia, maybe once a month, prolly 1.5 ounces.
Those are all raw by the way. They're not sprouted, soaked, or anything else. They're just plain raw nuts.
I like "crunches" in my salad, so I use a combination of toasted seeds and nuts to sprinkle on, either sliced almonds, pepitas, or sunflower seeds. Almonds, usually about 2 Tbsp once a week, the seeds maybe closer to 1 Tbsp three times a week.
