View Full Version : NUTS - so many recipes have lots of nuts, advice on alternatives?

I'm just starting on raw and not keen on the amount of nuts in some recipes, i.e. 1 cup which is a massive amount of calories.
Can anyone suggest an alternative to bulk up meals - I like avocado but I can't have that at lunch and tea!
Do people eat an avocado a day?

I had two avos yesterday and may have two today ... some days I have none.
Nuts are very nice soaked and you will adjust to eating them in sensible quantities. Don't be scared of them.
Sprouted seeds and grains are a good bulk adder. Check out the sprouting section on the forum and also videos on you tube.
Grated sweet potato is another filling food and I have that in a kim-chee-come-coleslaw that I make with a raw dressing.
The permutations are endless and it is great fun discovering new flavour and texture combos

What about using Buckwheat instead?
