View Full Version : Not Eating Nuts
12-15-2009, 10:31 PM
I really enjoy eating live food, but I'm not really a fan of nuts. I never really eat them, even before raw. But I'm paranoid that if I don't eat them I'll be missing out on some nutrient. Is it okay to be on the raw food diet and leave out the nuts? Thanks.. :)

Fyona - Can you get a copy of Alissa's book LIVING ON LIVE FOOD? I highly recommend it!! Read about her approach to RAW, which is simply this: "Listen to your Body!"
If your body doesn't want Nuts right now, don't feed it Nuts... that is my simple advise.
And stop being paranoid - it's a waste of your Time! That is my other advise. :D

I just came off of a cleanse about a week & a half ago & since then I've had like a total of 3 nuts! My body just doesn't want them right now. Listen to your body & eat what it is asking (raw of course :) ). It may just be going through a phase. Everything balances out!

My Son is eating RAW with me and he is Allergic to Nuts. So, I use Pumkin or Sunflower Seeds...especially for Pates...

Leaving out nuts will not deprive your body of anything.
Your body has its own inner wisdom and as you go along on this raw path you will be drawn to only that which supports you nutritionally. Anything else will not appeal to you.
This was the coolest bonus of raw for me. When I first went raw I had a green smoothie every day for over a year. Then these became too heavy for me and I just wanted straiight green juice and had that all summer , every day,lots and lots
Now it is liking smoothies a lil again.
Nuts have always been too heavy for me and when I eat the gourmet recipe creations, my body complains (because I ate them when my body was not even wanting them).
Listen listen listen to your own body..

im not a fan of them either but i notice i have been gettin dry skin which is unusual for me, i think maybe just eat a very small amount and add them to a very pure 100% raw diet

Nuts are a great source of fat and protein. If you can find a better way to get these two then I power to ya. They really don't have many nutrients tho.
