Acrylamide and asparinine in roasted nuts is of concern re cancer production. Go raw. ...Read more

Is eating avocados, bananas and peanut butter healthy?

Pretty good : Avocados have a very healthy fat that is great for the body and skin. Bananas are high in potassium and calm the brain with tryptophan.

Is 1 avacodo, handful almonds, sunflower seeds, walnuts, spinach leaves, tomatoe and onion a healthy lunch?

Surprisingly fatty.: Sounds good on the surface, but would be rather caloric because of the amounts of healthy fats in the avocado and nuts and seeds. Would cut back on those ingredients, perhaps choosing one per day and switching them up. ...Read more

Ate spaghetti squash (w/olive oil, goat cheese, salt, pepper). Nose swollen inside, sinusdrainage, asthma. Allergic to squash?!? Other food allergies.

Food allergy: If you ate the squash and had an immediate reaction (minutes to 2hrs) that included hives, swelling, shortness of breath, wheeze, throat tightness, vomiting or passing out then I would be concerned for a food allergy reaction. Would make an appointment with an allergist to determine what could be the culprit foods. Bring list of ingredients eaten that meal to appointment. Avoid foods until seen. ...Read more

Is it better to use canned pumpkin or fresh pumpkin? Canned pumpkin pie mix or just plain canned pumpkin?

Is it better to use canned pumpkin or fresh pumpkin? Canned pumpkin pie mix or just plain canned pumpkin?

Fresh but celebrate!: I believe in fresh fruits&veggies/shopping in the periphery of the store. However, if you have a family recipe or something that you use once per year and it's canned pie mix, go for it! Generally speaking - fresh/single ingredients are better than mixtures/processed foods since you know more about what you're mixing with the single ingredients. We can definitely discuss more about sugars, etc. ...Read more

I am allergic to pistachios, but I can't eat raw sunflower seeds or raw almonds? Are those allergies?

Most likely , yes: Pistachios and almonds are both tree nuts and can cross react with other tree nuts like cashews, walnuts, almonds and hazelnuts and all of them should be avoided. Sunflower seeds are not treenuts and usually do not cross react with treenuts. However, if you have adverse reactions whenever you eat them, they should be avoided as well. ...Read more

I eat daily lot good healthy food: raw almond, seed, Walnut, Pecan Pistachio, Brazil nut, & olive oil.This adds up to 15+grams sat fat.  Any Concerns?

NO unless...: While it's long been recommended that people minimize saturated fat, recent research suggests there's no benefit to limiting saturated fat (especially when it comes from the healthy foods you are eating) unless you have Familial Hypercholesterolemia or ApoE4. See http://authoritynutrition.com/saturated-fat-good-or-bad/ for a very well-written discussion of saturated fat and the current science. ...Read more
