nuts only drop a few weeks of the year.
coconuts you risk your life to get and or they are really hard to get open.
seeds are hard to find.
i still eat them during the year when im around those areas. this automatically keeps them consumed at levels that dont give my health issues.
i strongly advise against people with digestive issues to have a break from all overt fats to give the whole digestive system a fat breather. fats are the hardest macro nutrient to digest and high fat diets are unhealthy regardless the source.
also when i eat nuts, seeds, coconut, i eat em mono of with some baby greens or tomato. i dont hid em in a big gourmet recipie cos then its easy to eat more than our body naturally desires.
i dont eat cashews and havent for coming up 3 years.
i hadnt eaten maccadamias for over a year and then had some recently whilst in north queensland and this rash on my arm started up again...interesting.
flax is the lowest fat content nut/seed and also the fastest digesting and easy to get fresh and ready to sprout.
nuts/seeds are a great way to store fat on the body if we have a long trek/ride etc coming up where food sources might be restricted a little. you can fatten up like a goose and complete the migration and if you run out of food or have to eat a little less, then your fat stores will carry you for a few days without going into the red zone. but i only recommend this for season raw athletes as the newbie will just end up undereating too much and going back to cooked and yo 'yo'n from there. :(

I get rashes from nuts too now - having gone no overts for a while. Took a bit of experimenting, but everything apart from almonds seems to make me break out. People don't usualy write about nuts resulting in eczema/rashes only.
Gotta follow the body's wisdom, guess it's different for everybody.
Well I can't really tell you if we are especially designed to eat nuts, but we can thrive on having some in our diet. And the beauty of having a brain is that we evolved to use tools to get to foods we wouldn't normally. Does it make it necessarily bad food for us? I think it's debatable.
