nuts and seeds

shadowone1shadowone1 Posts: 1,408
Tend to use them as a sweet substitute. There's usually some lurking in the cupboard. Brazil nuts are a favourite. Also have pumpkin seeds and hemp/flax seeds - mainly as a topping to cereal - or just to snack on.

Recently though, I have been using sweets as a nut substitute. Which isn't quite so good.

P.S. What's happened to the dog?

    do any of you's incorp these into your diet?

    If so what kind/type etc

    I read in 220 that these can help in the diet so I was keen to give it a go.

    I like to have pine nuts, and things like a bag of mixed nuts & dried fruit. Not sure if they are good or not, but they taste good and i like them.

    Shadow will make a dramatic return very soon.

    It is indeed. At about 4 months old. He's a great big 7 month old now. Still breathtakingly beautiful though.

    Whoops! Nothing to do with Tri. Sorry.

    That's ok, i have a tendency to skew off topic. He's very handsome.

    does he like nuts and seeds? lol

    oh forgot to add i always have seeds and nuts in my cupboard and i too use them for a substitute for sweets...doesn't always work tho[;)] i find brazil nuts are the sweetess..cashews are also good...

    i made my own muslie and added seeds, nuts and dried fruit...also use them to top salads (seeds only on this one)...

    I admire the way you've managed to bring the thread back on topic!

    Macadamia nuts are also rather nice - but so many calories. Probably more than sweets!

    but not empty calories...always have a box of mixed fruit & nuts beside the settee & dip in as & when. A real mix brazils, cashews, almonds, hazel, peanuts, wallnuts, raisins etc.
