If your like 90% of the women that come to me for coaching with everything from skin issues, weight that just won't budge to recovery after going through chemo, you most likely consume this popular food in your daily smoothie, spread over bread or sprinkled on your soups and salads!
Whats the food I'm talking about? What food causes women to gain weight rapidly and if done in over abundance an wreak havoc on ones hormones? NUTS! YEP! You guessed it, nuts! You can soak them, sprout them do whatever the heck you want with them but mark my words, NO WOMAN I have ever met can eat a serving size of nuts and stop! Honestly, ask yourself if you stop after eating ONE Brazil nuts or just twelve almonds? I bet the answer is NO!
Below are my top three reasons for limiting my nut intake to no more than one~two servings per day! Not twelve, but one~two!
1} Some nuts are estrogenic ~ this means they stimulate the body to produce more estrogen than it already does. Estrogen is great and yes, both men and women need it but NO, we don't need to over eat on foods that bring on more estrogen!
2} They are difficult to digest! One of the BIGGEST mistakes I see new vegans and raw folders do is to go out and buy gourmet vegan and raw food books with all of these fancy, heavily laden nut dishes in them! Good lord, I honestly prefer people to rethink this fallacy!
3} They are not food combinable! This means they contain both proteins and carbs with fat! Therefore they are ONLY to be used in conjunction with a green meal or with dried fruit in moderate amounts. To be truthful, they are best eaten alone as a snack! If you can keep it to one serving!
What I had for brunch today! Nut~less cereal!
12 oz of banana date milk
7 dried dates
1 fresh banana
dried bananas on top!
