  • As nuts go, how are pistachios and monkey nuts?

    From reading some of the posts on here, I gather that some nuts are better than others, with macadamias seemingly near the top of the tree.

    My favourites are pistachios and monkey nuts, and I was wondering if anyone had any info or opinions on how these compare to macadamias and others.

    Here's a great article comparing several varieties of nuts and seeds and their anti-nutrient and PUFA content

    In the mind of the beginner, there are many possibilities; in the mind of the expert, there are few.

      Unless Google is wrong, monkey nuts are called peanuts here in the states~ they're legumes and not used for primal~ I do enjoy pistachio nuts though~ unfortunately, although I like them, I get allergy warnings from macadamia nuts, so I don't eat them.

          @Nady Monkey nuts are peanuts.
          Eating primal is not a diet, it is a way of life.
