    Why are peanuts bad?

    Shop Now
    I mean, I understand they are technically a legume and not a nut, but they are a good source of protien & fat, right? Also, HOW bad are they?

    It's not that I doubt, I would just like to better understand.

    It's hard to find inexpensive nut mixes that don't include peanuts, but since I've gone Primal, nuts are one of my go-to snacks, often breakfast.

    I just want to know exactly what I'm doing when I'm ingesting a peanut (or other legumes, for that matter).

    Cool, according to this, legumes aren't bad, they just aren't that good either.

    I've no allergies, My diet should balance any O6 with O3, and the ones I'm eating are mixed with dried fruit and more healthy nuts, so that should ameliorate any aflotoxins, if any are present in treated nuts. There are carbs, but they are locked away in soluble fiber, so no glucose/insuline spike to worry about, so in moderation, I should be fine with nut mixes that include some peanuts.

    I won't go out of my way to eat them, but I don't need to shun them.

    Might want to read this just for general info purposes~

    Aflatoxins in Food Okay~ it's aimed at feeding pet birds (I have a parrot) but the info is accurate if you eat the same seeds/grains as birds~
