  • Cashews and Grok

    I know we should limit nuts anyway, but my question is whether to eliminate cashews completely, or have them occasionally. I read that cashew nuts are naturally encased in some really "vile" liquid that you don't want contact with. Therefore would Grok have ever eaten a cashew?

    I hope so, they are my favorite snack!

      cashews & macadamias are the top of my nutty food chain! When I want nuts, they're the first ones I reach for.

          I think I know what you mean. I recently had an allergic reaction to mangoes. The mango skin, leaves, and branches contain a compound also found in poison oak and ivy called urushiol. It's bug repellent for the plant and rash causing for many. Within the mango family are cashews and pistachios I believe. They too contain certain amounts of urushiol that must be eliminated. I believe it's only on the outside of the fruits, so the cashew nuts should not be a huge problem. That's just a guess on my part, but hopefully I cleared some things up.

            I can't see Grok going to all that trouble for each cashew. Wouldn't he eat other nuts instead? I don't know whether to give them up. There are many other nuts to choose from, but the cashew sure is good.

              Maybe he wouldn't? or maybe he had a method for doing so, either way, with modern methods we have an advantage and the ability to eat them so why wouldn't we? Grok wouldn't have taken supplements like Vit D for those long dark winters, but we can. I'm certainly not prescriptive about what I eat, and I like cashews

                  I like this. I am wondering what else it might apply to that I might be avoiding.

                    There's so many different nuts List of culinary nuts - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
                    Even the culinary nuts are a small sample of what's in the wild. Many of them have different macro's compared to most of the staple cultivated nuts.

                      This is a really cool link.

                      It puts almonds and cashews in the same category, and macadamia and brazil nuts are in the same category as peanuts. Very interesting. According to this, the only two true nuts I eat are hazelnuts and walnuts, and almonds, macadamias and cashews are not true nuts (I knew cashews weren't).

                      Cashew butter is incredible. It rivals peanut butter and is leaps and bounds better than almond butter. Awesome, just awesome. I need to post up how I made mine...

                        Cashews give me the worst case of indegestion and IBS-like symptoms over any sort of 'nut.' Almonds are next after that. I wager the lectin content in cashews is astronomical based on my reaction.

                          Yeah, I think cashews are seeds. I think. Post that recipe for cashew butter, please.

                            i personally can't eat nuts (allergies-- i have major breakouts) but i've heard cashews are easier to consume if cooked than raw. you could dry roast em so that you're not adding any junk. i remember at the freddies in OR they had a few different spiced cashew types too that looked pretty good, garlic cashews and thai cashews, i think.

                              I eat them in moderation, along with other nuts... Maybe once every couple of months. For a while I had them lumped in with peanuts on my "Black List" but since I eat nuts so infrequently, I figured it didn't matter if some of them were Cashews. Still don't eat peanuts, though.

                              The only nut and nut butter I eat with any regularity is Macadamia.
