Eye-opening and helpful! A couple of questions
Is peanut butter safe ? I often take 30-40 gram shot of this for satiety. Also, all the nuts out there.. the keto crowd touts macadamias, brazil nuts, and pistachios….are these too rough on our systems. Does dry roasting mitigate some of the negative factors?
Finally, I love bananas but the current chic crowd of keto-oriented nutrition “experts” really attack them (no doubt because of higher sugar content). From your teaching it appears bananas are quite helpful – ripened of course.

Great to hear that Michael!
I wouldn’t have too much peanut butter because it’s pretty high in PUFA. Macadamia nuts are the only nuts I recommend because they’re very low in PUFA. Roasting wouldn’t really have any effect on decreasing PUFA (it would damage it if anything, causing more issues) – it may decrease some amount of antinutrients but not as much as soaking/sprouting would.
Yep, ripe bananas would be a good choice!
