  • Roasting your own nuts... Is it OK? And other portable breakfast ideas.

    Hi All, I just had a question regarding the roasting of nuts and seeds.

    Welcome to the world of conflicting information. I limit my eating of nuts because of the high calorie content and weight gain. Some folks say only eat raw, others don't eat and some gorge themselves silly on them. I figure I'm playing it safe by having a small amount of almonds or walnuts.

    I'd be more inclined to take some hardboiled eggs and bacon or other protein for a simple portable breakfast - add some baked sweet potato as well. btw - I solved the in-law problem by moving 3,000 miles away.

      fritatta muffins.

      or go visit after breakfast.
      As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.

        I was going to suggest this as well. Those things are great. Here is an example recipe:

        As far as nuts, I think roasting them is fine so long as you don't overheat/burn them. It's certainly better than buying commercially roasted nuts that were likely roasted using industrial seed oils. Even better would be soaking/sprouting them and then dehydrating. And then roasting them if you choose to. In case you haven't seen Chris Kresser's take on nuts, here it is:

          I only toast nuts for holiday recipes, usually 200-250F for 1 hour. They should smell very perfume-y and not taste bland or bitter--then I store in the freezer. But ya, they're not a great meal staple. I'd bring a bento with boiled eggs, yogurt, pickles, or fruit.

            Thanks for the info! I'll look into the egg ideas for sure. I'm just a bit worried about cooking a egg dish and then transporting it as the drive is 5 hours.

              if the drive is 5 hours how often are you actually there for breakfast?

              pack a cooler for the car.

              eat before you go.

              say you're not hungry.

              meh, why argue?

                btw, eggs are pretty stable at room temp, raw and cooked. it's common in france for hard-cooked eggs to be out on bars for a snack with a drink and in spain fritattas are out all day at room temp.

                  Once a month for 3 days each visit so the arriving after breakfast isn't really an option

                  I'll give it a go thanks for the help

                    I have German in-laws. My mother in-law was very worried I will die hungry in the morning if I do not eat bread, and she won't have anything to feed me (you know, that precious What do you eat? stunned expression), but got used to me eating boiled eggs....
