Since I just posted a blog on how to create nut milk with all kinds of nuts and seeds, I thought you’d be interested in shopping tips for nuts and seeds.

5 Tips to Shop for and Enjoy Nuts and Seeds

  1. Eat raw, whole, unsalted nuts and seeds. They are whole foods and not processed.
  2. No added oils. Be sure to read labels and buy nuts, seeds, and nut butters with no added pro-inflammatory omega-6-rich oils like cottonseed, peanut, safflower, and sunflower.
  3. Keep cold. Store in the refrigerator, as nuts and seeds may go rancid due to their high fat content.
  4. Eat fresh nuts and seeds. Do not eat nuts or seeds that smell and taste bad (like oil paint); they may be carcinogenic.
  5. Be careful. Toasted, chopped, and ground nuts go rancid more quickly than whole raw nuts, so eat them as soon as they are prepped.


Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
