Nut based diet?
Hi. I´m working for some few years with organic agriculture and food forest. I wonder if a diet based on fruits, vegetables, roots, nuts and milk would be healthy. Some roots as sweet potato and manioc (carbohydrate sources) for example are highly yealding in small areas. In comparison, grain production (protein sources) is much less intensive and a much larger area and toil are necessary to produce it. My actual intake of proteins is based on milk, beans and peanuts. I eat it every day for many years and am very healthy. My question is: could I stop eating peanuts and beans and eat only nuts as substitutes? A nut tree produces a lot, with no work at all, with no soil disturbance and degradation and cattle and chickens may live under it (and manure it). Thanks!
