Paleo Challenge Points Jan 2016 Today is Day 13 January 16th of your Paleo Challenge. Today you post points from yesterday 1/15/16

Lets talk about nuts. Can you do your Paleo Challenge with out them?  "I’m sorry to suggest that these incredibly convenient packages of yummy goodness are not the best choice. Did you know that 18 almonds has 168 calories? And about 15 cashews has 165 calories! If you are trying to drop a few L.B.s you might want to rethink your intake of nuts.

If you have health issues that clearly indicate complete avoidance of nuts (like an allergy, sensitivity, unresolved inflammation, leaky gut and/or autoimmune disease), there isn’t a reason to omit them altogether.  Consider nuts an emergency snack food, a special treat, and a lovely way to make salads and veggie dishes a little tastier".

I know I hear you saying but I don't have any sensitivities or autoimmune disease. Lets be clear what those definitions mean.

Sensitivities can be defined as waking up with a stuffy nose, seasonal allergies, dry skin, acne, joint pain, headaches, ill health (your sick) You have to remembers your immune system starts in the gut and if you have some issues that you are trying to avoid well....

Inflammation can be defined as FAT! you are trying to lose weight, get rid of the blotted stomach, heart burn, constipation, diarrhea. You get the drift.

Do you take thyroid meds? Then you have an autoimmune issue.
