As many of you may know, many of the so called "raw" almonds that are being sold in stores aren't actually raw and are put through the process of pasteurization. Of course, i've heard countless times about the ill effects of pasteurized milk. I guess, i'm just wondering if the same applies to almonds. i'm on and off with almonds. I'll go a couple weeks without them, then start again stuffing my face with them for a good couple days then stop again. I'm just wondering if i should really be worried about get the fake raw almonds from a place like trader joes.(they sell at a pretty reasonable price and are so addictive, but then again so are sugar and fructose)
Also, if you could give me your thoughts on nuts. I know it may be different for everyone depending on how their body reacts to it, but as far as a snack in terms of good health and nutrition.
