  • thephysiquebuilderDude...really? This is not good for people to eat....and it's not protein...it's fat and sugar
  • rxlovesfitness@thearchibald well put. Perfect example of #justbecauseitispaleodoesnotmakeithealthy. This candy, not health food.
  • thephysiquebuilder@olearyr84 yes. This crap will make you fat
  • jodi_finds_balance@thearchibald @olearyr84 There's many benefits to nuts, and honey, depending on your personal goals, micros, and timing. I know bodybuilders who eat these post-workout regularly even the weeks before a show. #truth #worksforsome #iifym
  • rxlovesfitnessThe macros on this (with minimal honey and equal parts almonds, walnuts, and pecans) is still 37.5g fat, 27.5g carbs, 10.5g prot Per 1/2 cup (more fat than a triple whopper--though different fats, with less than half the "protein"). Short of bulking, I don't see this as a "healthy food option". It's a treat. A treat with antioxidants, and an over abundance and imbalanced amount of omegas, though still a treat and not something that should be indulged in regularly. Not a personal attack, love your brand, just not a fan of potential #misinformation being given out as a general statement that comes across as universally applicable. True, for people this may work for some who are states of gaining/carb cycling, though as a trainer I would not recommend this for the majority though who are casual in their training and fitness. @jodi_mclaughlin

  • completenutrition@oleary84 @thearchibald The recipe for this is as follows: 3 (1 cup each) cups raw almonds, pecans and walnuts, 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon, 1/6 cup honey. Combine nuts and cinnamon in a medium bowl, add honey, toss to thoroughly coat nuts. Bake at 350 On a non-stick cookie sheet stirring every 10 minutes for about 20 minutes or until golden brown. Yields 12 servings | Serving size 1/4 cup | Calories 192 | Total Fat 17g | Saturated Fat | 1g | Trans Fat 0g | Cholesterol 0mg | Sodium 10 mg | Carbohydrates 1g | Dietary Fiber 3g | Sugars 6g | Protein 4g | NOTE: The total fat content in Cinnamon & Honey Nuts is also know as "good fat" or monounsaturated fat. These fats are considered heart healthy Omega 3's. Thank you so much for asking that we clarify the information on this, as we are just suggesting it as a healthy snack. I'm sure you'll both agree that it's a much better alternative any day as a treat than an over-processed candy bar or fast food purchase.
  • jodi_finds_balance@olearyr84 Agreed, but remember that CN does have followers, and customers, who are very educated and know if/when to eat something like this. Nature of the beast when you have to appeal to such a broad client range like CN has. I don't think this post was intended to recommend this to everyone, but a recipe for athletes who know they can have those macros. But I totally understand what you said about misinformation! It's everywhere.
