View Full Version : Amount of nuts in a week?
02-21-2007, 11:25 PM
I'm very curious how many cups/lbs of nuts people use in say a week or even 2?
I very much enjoy the process of cooking or uncooking and meal preparation is a lot of the fun of eating for me. I'm finding it hard to gauge the amount I might expect to use. Obviously family size has a lot to do with it, a basic idea would really help until I learn our rate of consumption.

I haven't eaten that many lately mainly because they seem to have doubled in price where I usually buy them from. I was worried about all the fat that I was getting in the beginning when I first decided to embrace raw (last August) I didn't measure anything. I was eating nuts everyday for the first few months with whatever else I ate. I mean I ate big handfuls of cashews, pecans, walnuts, and almonds. I went crazy with the brazils. I probably ate at least 20 or more in a seating for a snack. I did have to check myself with the brazils. I even ordered some really delicious nuts off of eatraw.com (spicy and other flavors). It was like I just couldn't stop myself with those brazils and cashews. When I saw that the weight was literally dropping off despite the massive amounts of nuts I was eating, I stopped worrying about it. Like I said, I didn't measure but I would have to estimate that a snack of nuts would probably equate to 1 -2 cups at a time (depending on my stash for the week). This post has motivated me, I am going to order some nuts....
