If you’re a regular follower of my blog, you’ll know I’m a little peanut obsessed. Here’s another one to add to the collection!
A word from The Raw Food Girl
I do love making my raw chocolate truffles… Dates. walnuts and cacao, it’s a pretty delectable combo. And very more-ish.
Sometimes though, my gut kind of reacts to the combination of fruits and nuts. Since the two are digested very differently, ideally they should not be eaten together.
Effective food combining is a fascinating subject. This chart provides a great rundown of what foods should be eaten together and why. I highly recommend you check it out – living these principles have really helped me to plan and prepare grea meals that are gentle on my guts.
Each country has it’s own regulations and standards on food production – so it’s a good idea to check the source of your peanuts before you buy them. Both Australia, the U.S. and Canada have strict safety requirements when it comes to food, so buy locally when you can.
Peanuts provide an excellent source of plant protein (around 33%). They are also provide fibre, some vitamins, minerals and fat, so you don’t need to be afraid of them. Just eat them in moderation and buy from quality suppliers.
