For many of those who move from a diet high in processed foods and low in nutrients to eating a diet based on more single-ingredient whole foods, the joy that snacking on various nuts and nut butters brings is obvious.
So please forgive when I say something that some of you are not going to want to hear.
Those healthy, natural, ‘paleo-friendly’ nuts you’re consuming may be working AGAINST you. Let me explain…
In this video I discuss three potential problems that can arise from eating too much of what might otherwise be a healthy snack: nuts (and nut butters).
- Energy/caloric density
- omega 6 content
- phytic acid content
I also discussed my thoughts on how much actually is too much?
Would love to hear your feedback in the comments below.
