It's obviously not natural but it's still fruit and, presumably, has a similar nutrient profile just with the added convenience of not watching out for seeds. Seedless fruit is easier to eat at your desk but is there more to it? For example,... (more)

The reason I hear most for why grains are bad is that they contain anti nutrients. Grains are seeds and since it is disadvantageous for them to be eaten (they can't reproduce that way) they evolved to contain anti nutrients to stop animals from... (more)

Dry roasted hazelnuts are 15% protein, dried black walnuts are 24% protein. That's about as high protein as vegetables get unless you use protein isolates or eat legumes.
