    Reading the new Whole30 book, It Starts With Food, (ahhhhmazing by the way), and I came across the nut section. Cashews and macademias are on the top of the list.... Do I vaugely remember the PB and mark telling us they're toxic??? Was just curious what everyone thought about this! Thankssss

    I would watch the quantity of cashews. They're freaking addictive, and they're a bit high in carbs if you're watching that and eating them by the fistful. Not that I would ever do that...

    Do not allow yourself to become wrapped up in a food 'lifestyle'. That is ego, and you are not that.

    No. Cashews, while seeds and not true nuts, are fine.

    Are Cashews Primal or Paleo? | Mark's Daily Apple

    They're not ideal food - no nuts are - but they're better than some nuts. They actually have pretty low PUFA content compared to most nuts. Make them a treat - a handful on your salad every once in awhile, maybe crust your salmon in a handful of chopped cashews, the occasional apple with almond butter for a snack or dessert, etc. Just don't make them...or any nut...a dietary staple.

    Omega-6 Content Various Nuts (1/4 cup)
    Walnuts 9.5 g
    Almonds 4.36 g
    Cashews 2.6 g
    Macadamias 0.5 g
    Brazil nuts 7.2 g
    Hazelnuts 2.7 g
    Pistachio 4.1 g
    Pine nuts 11.6 g
    Pecans 5.8 g

    Kinda yes, kinda no.
    I think they taste less "nutty" and a little flat in flavor. However, it could be that I haven't dehydrated them enough before roasting them.
    I do know that roasting (dry) cashews in coconut oil makes them delicious.
