The pine nut diet

posted by Jason Kottke   Jun 11, 2010

My wife ate some pine nuts a few days ago and has had a weird metallic taste in her mouth ever since.

Monday for lunch I ate the leftovers, including a bunch of whole pine nuts that had fallen to the bottom of the dish. By Tuesday evening I had a weird taste in the back of my throat, so weird that when I when I woke up during the night, I couldn’t get back to sleep.

The taste was so bad that she doesn’t really feel like eating anything. That got me thinking: the pine nut diet. When you need to drop some pounds, eat a few of the offending pine nuts and boom!, eat as much as you want…as long as you can stand the taste.

P.S. Meg’s back to blogging over at Megnut.
