Shells,

Walnuts are very good but I agree that just eating handful of walnuts can be blah so you can also chop them and put them in salads or add to chicken dishes (lightly toasted with tamari sauce makes them crunchy in the skillet).

Just a thought...

Nuts can be hard to digest and I think that's one of the reasons to not eat too many.

I have 2 Tb of ground flax every morning in smoothies.  In the evening, I have a couple of Tb. nut butter on my toasted rice cakes:  raw almond butter mixed 1/2 and 1/2 with chopped walnuts.

Soaking them overnight makes them so much more digestible, and I think that is why I can actually eat so MANY without it ever bothering me.  And I continue wanting more!

Soaking them does make them more digestible and I enjoy the taste of soaked nuts and seeds; I find that they have a different texture as opposed to eating plain unsoaked raw nuts and seeds.

I eat nuts practically every day.  Normally just a handful, but I find I eat more when I am out for the day or travelling...a nut and dried fruit mix is in my bag just about all the time, in case there is a situation with a meal where there is nothing available for me to eat.

Yes, I had the impression that since they were beneficial, I could get by with eating more than the recommended amount.  Not so for me.  The scales will tell me.  They do contain fat, albeit good fat, but they contain both monounsaturated and saturated, I believe.  I have backed off on them lately and can already tell a difference in my waist size.    All the working out, of course, is very necessary as well, but backing off the nuts and oils has made a difference in a very short time for me.  Also, just a smoothie in the a.m. is helping too, I think.
