    Oh, I always check out the veggie section, and if there is a sale on greens or carrots, I grab them. I have two hungry rabbits at home..

    It's cool to read through these old conversations when looking for possible answers to questions I have, this one being- why am I so "ready" to disregard what I am doing for myself (healing leaky gut and much more) for a bit of dark chocolate (milk chocolate wouldn't satisfy this craving, maybe that says something), salty roasted almonds (or pistachios), and carbs- say large amounts of something low in sugar like... dark chocolate covered almonds........... or even a big fat yam loaded with kerrygold.

    I’m going through the exact same thing. Struggling through a leaky gut diet and craving peanut butter and almond butter like crazy. Usually with bananas or dates. It’s to the point where my wife has to hide the peanut butter and bring it to work. I sit there and spoon it in knowing full well how bad it will make me feel......

    Peanut butter carries a lot of mold not to mention I'm pretty sure the Justins has added sugar (not positive). Also, PB is high in Omega 6 and contains oxalates. Just saying, might be worth skipping. On the other hand, if it gets you eating sardines, rock on!!

    My body does not like nutbutter either I do not eat them.
    I do not keep stuff at home that is not good for me.
    When I lived with my ex husband and I still had cravings I forbid him to keep anything at home that could have messed me up. If he wanted it, he needed to eat it outside home. It worked great that way :) (and no, this is not why he is now my ex....lol)

    What if you get you some really good quality organic raw fresh nuts instead? :)
    That is what I would do... might be something in nuts your body needs right now?

    I have no issues with good quality nuts. Just make sure they are not old and rancid, and they should be organic and best is, raw.

    I have few dietary vices (I eat to live rather living to eat like so many people).

    But one thing I indulge in is delicious peanut butter (organic, of course).

    I use it rarely as a special treat. Life is short so I don't feel guilty about a bit of extravagant indulgence.

    I know it is problematic in many ways, including mold toxins.

    One hack for those who enjoy a smidgen of peanut butter now and again is to take some activated charcoal before eating it. It should help absorb any mycotoxins you ingest. Like all nut butters, it is important to refrigerate peanut butter at all times to avoid rancidity (that may be masked by PB's strong flavor).

    Being of northern European ancestry I steer towards hearty, fat-rich foods in winter and cooler seasons. Fruits and grocery veggies just simply don't satisfy or nourish at that time.

    I know this is an older tread but nuts and nut butter are favorites of mine--
    Expensive and I limit but love VOR KETO Nut BUTTER... may be healthier than many brands but I wish it was organic.
    They have other nut and seed butters too.

    Would like Peanut butter once in a blue moon.... Thanks for the activated charcoal tip.

    I relate to what you shared. Appreciate the mention to refrigerate...that makes sense.

    About recourse with indulgence...I wonder if a quality Vit E, like Unique E liquid or a capsule broken open taken with nut butter would be protective instead of charcoal? Nutritionist suggested that tip for me to use if I ever felt I'd eaten any questionable oils. I really like Activated Charcoal but doesn't activated charcoal interfere with good nutrients as well as toxins? I use activated charcoal if my stomach is upset (happens rarely) and it always seems to work for that. I've heard of people trying activated charcoal longer term for candida and I've also read that D-Mannose can also fight candida. Studied Candida overgrowth but never understood it well. I thought it might have been an issue for me but I never determined that definitively. I also have wondered if candida is a driving force behind carb and sugar cravings.

    After sugar I tend to crave coffee, fat, salt and nuts. Most likely I pardon salt and nuts more.
