Regular nut consumption linked to less inflammation

"Eating five or more servings per week, or swapping out meat for nuts in meals three times a week, was shown to reduce biomarkers for inflammation …

Peanuts and tree nuts contain magnesium, fiber, L-arginine, antioxidants and unsaturated fatty acids that offer protection against inflammation, though researchers note they are unsure which are responsible for the effect."

Guess I'll have to get some cashews and pistachios on my next trip to the pharmacy or grocery store, whichever comes first.

I keep a big container of nuts for snacks. Hubby takes them to work









Note: Please excuse any misspelled works or grammar errors. I have CNS lupus and brain lesions and use a program to help me type

Bun, did you have both upper and lower teeth done? Or are you still having adjustments made?

I'm hoping that I am almost done with adjustments, and I'm getting my mouth guard on Tuesday. This is going to be interesting trying to eat when I go to the county fair.

gonna have to put 'em in a blender.


You could just buy "almond flour" and save yourself the mess & trouble.  There are lots of these nut "flours" available now; I use them to make bread, pancakes, muffins, etc since I don't eat grains anymore.  I love the boost of protein they offer my boys & me too. :)  Just made a blueberry banana "bread" w/ the almond flour, and it is so yummy!

I've seen different nut butters too. I might try some of those instead of buying the nuts that I may have a hard time eating.

I love nuts too, cashews & pecans best, but they don't love my waistline. I take 3300 mgs of powder ginger capsules for an anti-inflammatory, reummy told me that's too much-could cause bleeding. I was off ginger for 10 days, & all my finger joints & knuckles, & wrists were driving me nuts they hurt constantly. Looked in my herb medicine book, no side effects but could cause stomach upset so take with food. Could also cause the runs. Two experts I checked said nothing about bleeding. I started back on ginger today, & hands feel so much better, coincidence- I'll let you guys know if it keeps helping unless I forget, then ask. There are too many places to try to find my way to the right spot. Love to all

Bun, I think uppers bleed more than lowers, but you have a greater chance of dry sockets with the lowers.

I just needed the top ones for now. Still having adjustments on my uppers but hopefully soon they will be done and padding put in. I'm hoping by the end of August before school starts in September.

Raw nuts are the best.  Some of the oils used to roast nuts in are downright unhealthy.

always make sure to toast or soak your nuts before eating them, all nuts have a chemical coating on them that is toxic.
