What's Wrong With Peanuts?

In “The Essential Berardi,” when recommending fat source it states:

“Fats: Fish oil (in salmon or as a salmon or isolated EPA/DHA supplement), flax oil, mixed nuts (no peanuts), olive oil.”

Why no peanuts?

They aren’t realy nuts.

A little crazy, sure, but not realy nuts.

They are considered a legume. Personally I find them a little harder to digest than other nuts but I can’t resist a spoonful of peanut butter!!


He has written about it and touched on it a LOT. Its mainly I think due top the high amount of ppl whom are allergic and many feel that we all really are just some much moreso then others

That said I like my peanuts
