Yes: I tell my patients that nuts are ok. In the past it was thought that nuts caused problems for people with diverticuli, but I've seen at least one study refute that.

Controversial: While many gastroenterologist and other treating doctors still recommend to avoid eating seeds, nuts, popcorn, etc that may get "stuck" in diverticulae, there are multiple studies that suggest this isn't the case. Make of that what you will. A high fiber, vegetarian diet has been shown to be preventative.
