How to make an almond worth eating

1. Take almond
2. Place directly in trash can, toilet, or other waste receptacle
3. Eat something that doesn't taste terrible (see: any other nut, legume, and most fruits and vegetables)

the_chief: Hate to break it to you, but you can't lose weight by eating.


Sure you can. I lost 5lbs a couple weeks ago by getting food poisoning.

Dow Jones and the Temple of Doom: I know the paleo goofballs live their almonds. I prefer a variety of almonds, cashews, walnuts, Brazil nuts, and yes, even peanuts (the horror!)


I sure hope the paleo people are eating authentic paleo bitter almonds and not the more recently domesticated sweet almonds.

Except that the bitterness was cyanide and it would kill you.  The almonds we eat are cultivated with a genetic mutation so they won't kill you.

/don't ever eat wild almonds

Aquapope: Cog Spinner: Aquapope: Parboil a bunch of almonds, squeeze them out of the skins.  Slice them up and throw them into a simple syrup of 1 part water and 2 parts white sugar (and some molasses if you have it) for an hour.  Take them out (don't rinse them you dolt!) and spread them out on a cookie sheet and bake them for about 40-50 minutes at 275F.  Then put them in salads, coat fish fillets, eat them as snacks.  Add spicy stuff (like chipotle powder or whatever) before baking, as needed.

So...if I follow your recipe I will develop type 2 diabetes. Awesome!

NO! You'll have tasty caramelized almonds slivers (with or without spices, as you decide) to add to your good food.  It's up to you if  you want to eat too much.


Calm down. I'm just teazin. ;^)

Well... I guess if I went back to eating almonds, pushed my allergy into anaphylaxis territory and died, I'd... lose some weight, yes.

Anyway, like I was sayin', almond is the fruit of the tree. You can barbecue it, boil it, broil it, bake it, saute it. Dey's uh, almond-kabobs, almond creole, almond gumbo. Pan fried, deep fried, stir-fried. There's pineapple almond, lemon almond, coconut almond, pepper almond, almond soup, almond stew, almond  salad, almond and potatoes, almond burger, almond sandwich. That- that's about it.
