Came across this quote in the Tightwad Gazette that got me thinking.
“N is for nuts. I figure you’d have to be nuts to pay $4 a pound [back in the 90's] for something that only adds a bit of crunch to a cookie. At best, they are a healthful extravagence. Instead, I buy bulk, shelled sunflower seeds from a local health food store. On sale, they are 89 cents a pound [also back in the 90's].”
Aaron & I have never been real bigs fans of nuts, and I have been turned off by the high costs for good quality raw nuts in health food stores (average of $10 per pound for organic, raw walnuts). Could seeds be a more frugal alternative without losing out on the nutrition of nuts?
