View Full Version : Nut-based recipes make me sick!

Does anyone else have this problem? I love to prepare raw food, but so much of the meats, cheeses, sauces & creams are made with nuts. For some reason, I hate the taste and after a while I start to feel sick. I prep food for my fiance and he loves it! My friend & I went to Quintessence in NYC and she loved the lasagne & the soup made with nuts. I felt like I was going to barf! PLEASE HELP! I really want to eat raw food, but this is VERY limiting!:(

You might just need time to get your taste buds accustomed?! Try to stay away from a few weeks, and then maybe sample some foods that aren't too heavy on the nuts at first. Sort of ease into it. You can try to use flax seeds for breads and crackers, so you don't feel like you are really limited.
I was that way with avocados, and now I can't get enough of them!

Thank you for the encouragement Kaylene! I do love flaxseed crackers and PIE crusts made with nuts! I think I have an issue with onions/garlic mixed with the nuts. I noticed this after eating "neat" balls with spaghetti. It had a walnut base & spices including garlic & onion powder. My bf loved it, but I didn't, and couldn't place exactly why. Same with raw tacos. This makes me sad :( :(

Hmmm, well I find that I can't eat loads of nuts-I just don't feel good if I do eventhough I like the taste. Maybe it's just too much fat.
