Nuts are healthy, however they can be rough on the digestive system for candida sufferers, so perhaps consider consuming in smaller amounts. Watch for a reaction though - some people are fine with them, others are not.
A potential concern with nuts is that they can contain some mold. A possible remedy for this is soaking them in water and fresh lemon juice, then air drying them. Another possibility is putting them in the oven on low heat until crispy.
Ground flax seed goes bad very quickly. It is best to buy them whole. Grind with a food processor or coffee grinder and consume right away.
Another tip to remove mold - spray the nuts with a diluted grapefruit seed extract solution.
If you like nuts, stick to freshly cracked or whole ones, they hold the
possibility of having less mold.
