Contrary to popular opinion, nuts are fat-dominant food, not a protein-dominant food.
Hey should be eaten in reasonable quantities (a maximum of 0.33 pounds of 0.15 kg per day).
Because nuts are so concentrated, they should always be eaten with or just before a large meal of green-leafy vegetables.
Cashews are often cooked out of their shells. Even if they are labeled "raw", they are usually cooked.
Quantities should be kept to less than 2.0-2.5 pound (0.9-1.2 kg) of nuts per week. I recommend seeds over nuts because they seem to be more digestible.
A good edible seed should contain no more protein than 2 parts fat to 1 part protein (2:1 ratio). These include flax, hemp, pumpkin, sesame (used to make tahini), sunflower and especially young coconut (a coconut is actually a seed).
The seeds that we call "grains" and "legumes" are protein-dominant, not fat-dominant. I recommend against excessive protein-dominant seeds like these.
When someone says "I need protein", they often need and want fat.
