Macadamia Nuts a Little More Often


Recommended Posts

Hello! After scouring the forums I have concluded that nuts are not a good source of fat and not encouraged. On the omnivore shopping list in the Whole30 book, almonds, pecans, and pistachios are marked as "occasional" sources of fat, but macadamia nuts are marked as "good"? I have seen moderators recommend no more than a handful of nuts every other day as they are not a good source of fat, but I did a little bit of research and am guessing that is because they have a lot of omega-6 fats. Macadamia nuts, however, have 5 times less and 83% of fat is made up of the monounsaturated fats, which I think are the "healthy" ones. However, this is the internet, and anyone can write anything...

Bottom line: Can I eat an ounce of macadamia nuts as a fat at meals more often than every other day? One ounce has about the fat of 3/4 of an avocado, if that helps. I haven't eaten more than that and don't think I want to. Thank you in advance for your response!
