    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?

    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.

    See the quote in the first post here: http://theairlinewebsite.com/index.p...u-ever-wonder/
    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.
