http://www.myhomecooking.net/chocola...ng-walnuts.htm Don't mind the cookie thing. You can roast walnuts and put some sort of flavoring on them, I would go with some sort of steak rub, grill rub, or any flavoring you like that won't burn off in the oven.

I paid about £1.50 for 200gms or something. not bad considering you only need a few for some decent calories but yeah im sure you can buy them in bulk from somewhere.

I know i've said it a few times, but if you learn how to roast walnuts, or any nuts for that matter, you can add a great deal of flavor. Hell, if you have roasted peanuts and peanut oil, maybe some flax seed, you can home make peanut butter.

Haven't had anything by blue diamond, but I do love garlic. I've had green emerald nuts, pretty good stuff.

Pecans taste best, but have more carbs. Almonds don't taste quite as good imo, but you can eat more of them b/c of the low carb content.

Try your local bulk food store, if that even exists. I agree - walnuts taste like ass after a while. They have a bitter taste to them that quickly can be overdone. Almonds and cashews however have yet to bore me at the slightest, and I eat them both "raw" (unsalted, untreated... most affordable and ensures purity of nasty crap). They are definintly out there, you just have to find them. Going online is not a bad option though, as it is likely far more affordable if you go through more than a few handfuls a day.

Emerald "sea salt and pepper" cashews had me a few months ago. Had to stop buying it because I'd eat 2-3 times as much as I was supposed to be eating... hahha. Good stuff. Check that one out sometime.

in an attempt to maintain 1:1 omega 3 : omega 6 ratio, then you really have no other choice than to eat walnuts...
all the other nuts are far higher in omega 6. that's why walnuts have that taste that is not surprisingly similar to flax seed.
roasted walnuts are incredibly tasty. I do 350 degrees for about 15 minutes. they will be soft, but let them cool and they will be crunchy.
cashews, almonds, filberts, pistachios, peanuts, etc. are all omega 6 sources that most of us do not need. but nevertheless, they are unsaturated fats that are much better for us than saturated..
just so you know even greasy chinese food and french fries are high in omega 6.

Place the walnuts on a baking sheet - Spray them with PAM natural - Sprinkle cinnamon on them (no sugar) - Sprinkle some nutmeg... roast on 250 for 45 minutes. It's a great way to mask the ass taste without adding unwanted sugar. I have even been successful with sprinkling different All The Whey's protein on them.

I never thought of buying them online either, but hey, why not.
Try just mixing almonds with peanuts/cashews some, so you get a little bit of variety going.
Dang, I found some funky lookin stuff that was some type of weed on Ebay, but the link won't work, lol.

Another vote for sunflower seeds. Dirty cheap, you can get them shelled and roastes (no salt added) and they have a higher protein content than walnuts.
I personally mix it up between sunflower seeds, walnuts, and recently I added almonds to the mix.

Pistachios! I ate 9lbs in just over a month and a half. Costco only sells salted, but unsalted might be a bit healthier for you!

Sunflower seeds without the shells are bad ass. You have to be careful or you will eat handfuls at a time.

Tell them to eat pineapple before you eat their nuts, it should taste a lot sweeter and have little/no effect on blood sugar while still being high in protein.
Macadamia nuts are pretty good!

Steveo - It's best to buy bulk lots of almonds, seeds, etc... You can actually get them roasted with sea salt; get them raw; or many other ways.
I use Sun Organic Farms for all my bulk almonds, seeds, etc.

Dunno about the cost effectiveness, but nut butters are the shiiiiiit. Almond butter, cashew butter, and then my all-time favorite, cashew macadamia butter. Crazy good, and I mean almost too good - difficult to stop sometimes. It's like caramelized candy. Been buying my jars from Trader Joe's... check those down sometime... seriously good stuff.
