Just a question, it seems like a lot of the recipes have what some people may consider a lot of fat. Does it matter how much fat is in each meal because the fat comes from nuts (and other whole foods)? When eating raw, would someone who wants to lose weight ever count calories? I'm so curious about this. 🙂

I used a very scant 1/2 tsp of salt in the walnut meat and found it way too salty. Next time I will start with 1/8 tsp and add more if needed. The cashew cream is so easy and so delicious!
