“It Sounds Better With a Foreign Name” Productions proudly present “Gamle Kitans Nötblandning”!
Relax, it’s Swedish, mate. This fair Northern tongue means you no harm.
“Gamle Kitan” – means “Old Kitan” – me in other words (“Kitan” is my Swedish nickname ).
“Nötblandning” simply means “Nut mix”.
This, then, is my own personal preferred blend of nutty goodness, my snack of choice for those awkward moments when I’m between bowls of fruit.
Books and articles on all things Paleo tend to oscillate wildly between 2 contrasting positions when it comes to the topic of fruit and nuts.
Some more or less advocate filling your proverbial boots, suggesting that your are free to eat until replete.
Others seemingly warn that the merest sniff of a banana or the very sight of a cashew nut will be enough to instantaneously triple your weight.
I’m just lucky then, I guess. I can scoff fruit by the bucketload, and enjoy a small bowl of nuts several times a day, without gaining weight.
Throw in a nice cup of tea, such as an Oolong, and you’re well on the road to snacky Nirvana…
Gamle Kitans Nötblandning
- Cashew nuts
- Pecan nuts
- Brazil nuts
- Coconut flakes
- Simply place the nuts and coconut flakes in equal parts in a large lidded container. Shake well to mix thoroughly.
- The coconut flakes have a tendency to sink to the bottom of the container, so get in the habit of giving it a good shake before each serving.
