30 Bananas a Day!

Hello people, I do not have access to raw nuts where I am and was wondering if I can replace them entirely with sunflower seeds??

Also, The other day I had coconut which made me feel very good

yup I'm sure. I had the same question. Sounds like you're under carbed. 



A little fresh young coconut probably better than seeds and other nuts....

From the 30BaD Welcome Wagon:



Some starchy foods such as wheat bran, legumes and beans, and most nuts and seeds are high in substances called phytates. Phytates can prevent the body from absorbing calcium and other minerals.

Oxalate Acid

Almost all starchy foods including grains, tubers, legumes, and most nuts and seeds high in oxalate acid. The body does not absorb calcium well from foods that are high in oxalates (oxalic acid)."

As others said, 10% is the recommended maximum. Many do 90/5/5 and lower. You can get enough fat from fruits and vegetables to meet your body's need without adding in nuts, seeds or oils.

I'm not sure where you got the idea that "most" 30BaD'ers eat them on a daily basis, but I doubt that's really the case.

The links posted in this thread are also worth a read.

I would stick with fresh coconuts or avocados. And you can get a lot more fats from vegetables than fruits.

Consider as well the seasonality of nuts. They more or less all come out in fall and are gone by winter. Perhaps autumn is a good time to eat most of your nuts for the year. 

totally just thought of another solution- get a pumpkin and scoop the seeds. raw AF. looove iiit! then blend the pumpkin meat with bananas and coconut and dates to make pumpkin pudding, or any other millions of variations on a theme

sugar pie pumpkins. or any normal pumpkin. certainly not something i would eat as a staple, but fun to experiment with! you can also blend pumpkins with bananas and something like cinnamon, make it really thick and pour it into a date/nut shell with pumpkin pie spice, cloves/nutmeg or what have you. put it in the freezer. thaw it out for raw vegan pumpkin pie. great to bring to family thanksgiving, along with white rice with fresh chopped tomatoes, shredded carrot and a thin coating of date sauce. and lots of persimmons, which are in season now!!

I don't eat nuts/seeds all that often, but when I do, it's usually sunflower seeds and coconuts.  They seem to digest fine for me, and they're friggin delicious.

Alex, have you tried Macro Natural range from Woolworths? They have some raw nuts.

not really sure if i trust woolies anymore.

Sharing my experience to elaborate.

Few weeks back I bought a whole celery bunch from this small organic produce shop. It tasted like i was eating plain tablesalt... didnt really know what to think of it.. few days after felt my body was really really happy, so I concluded I really needed the salt that was in the celery.

Bought the organic macro celery from woolies the other day and even tried the conventional, all I could taste is water....

I have come to the conclusion that the theory that our soils are depleted is in fact true.

Woolies will only buy from farmers that can provide good looking dirt cheap produce. Do you really think the farmers can afford to enrich their soils for the massive overproduction of their produce?
