Macadamia Nuts ~ serving size?


(Donna Peterkin) #21

Macadamias come in 10oz bags for $10. Just checked, I thought the bag weighed more from the looks of it, so good to know 1/10 of bag is a serving, thought I’d been overdoing em. So yeah, Traders Joes, all KINDS of keto stuff, actually…precooked ready to heat delicious pork belly, great meats of all types, HWC in little boxes that require no refrigeration (til opened) and plenty of veggies, wine and liquor, if that’s your thing.

I am lucky to make it a week on costco bag but I do let my wife have a few.

Its too funny, I sat down with a hand full right before checking this thread.

One of those, full of macadamia nuts. One sitting. You game?

Thanks! I really had overlooked it from a meats perspective. I might visit today after I pick up my daughter from preschool nearby.

Haha. You’re nuts!

Well, not quite that large. If you like truffles, try the white truffle marcona almonds, although I can see where they’d be an acquired taste, but yeah, check out the store, and nutritional values are clear on everything, cept maybe some wheel-cut cheeses. Have fun.

I’ll back Doug. C’mon, money on the table.

No - I’m on a fast. :stuck_out_tongue:

But if I was eating and that big backpack was full of regular-sized bags of Macadamias, I could pull out a double handful of bags and rip right through them. It’s a mellow, creamy, buttery, rich-yet-subtle taste…

Macadamias are hard to find other than at Costco, and often even hard to find there. I buy them at Costco, and it really is a 6 month supply, but that’s ok. When I’m tired of eating meat, macadamias can sometimes hit the spot.

Rated top by the Wirecutter, just got mine yesterday… replacing both a big old kitchen scale and my breadmaking gram digital scale. Accurate to the gram, easy to read, and 5 KG max weight.

In the south, well at least here in central Florida, Publix grocery stores carries good macadamia nuts. It’s 12 oz for $11, IIRC, and they’re better than the last Mauna Loa nuts I had.

They are practically perfect little fat pills, aren’t they? :drooling_face:

The biggest problems is that our local stores are out for long spells. I think keto is catching on around here.

This! I love my scale. I’ve had it for years.

LOL, I could just see me picking out the smallest nuts to weigh out for 1 oz…and then actually pick the biggest ones to count out for eating. :smiley:

Yeah, I think there’s meant to be a stronger nexus between the weighing and eating bits than that :slight_smile:

I have had one of these since the day I started Keto a little over 2 months ago. It really is great! Easy to read, use, and very accurate. Only thing I wish is that it was about 1-2 inches larger in diameter. I only have 2 children plates that actually fit on it and wish I could fit more of my other plastic dishes I use when cooking. Otherwise I am more than happy with this scale!

Oddly, I don’t find the size a problem, even with my large cambro tub. I just push it a bit back. Still easy to read and get an accurate measure.
