What About Nuts? Good or bad for me?
I usually don’t recommend eating a lot of nuts, because of 2 main reasons: 1. the phytic acid content 2. the PUFA content.
What is phytic acid and why is it bad for me?
1. Phytic acid is the storage form of phosphorus contained in legumes, seeds and nuts, which binds certain minerals in the digestive tract. A high consumption of phytates will therefore lead to mineral deficiencies. Certain species like rats and cows can absorb a much larger percent of phytic acid, thus enabling them to consume foods containing it with out danger of malnutrition. (Another sign in my book that humans are not supposed to consume large quantities of them).
Lucky for us there is an easy answer: Soaking the nuts!
Yes soaking nuts in salty water for a minimum of 12 hour eliminates most anti-nutrients. (Phytates plus lectins and enzyme inhibitors!) Most of the anti-nutrients are found in the skin. Since many anti-nutrients are water-soluble, they simply dissolve when foods are soaked. Soaking also increases the availability of nutrients!
PUFAs and how to handle them
2. PUFA content. PUFA or polyunsaturated fatty acids are a necessary part of the balance between Omega 3s and Omega 6s. In order to mantain a healthy balance in the diet we need to pay attention to 2 things: First that the oils are not rancid, so I recommend storing your raw nuts in the freezer to preserve freshness. Second that the Omega 6 are in the correct 1:1 balance with Omega 3s. (Get your Omega 3s from plenty of sardines and pastured eggs!)
