I still like them, but I can't imagine eating 2 lbs. a week is good for you. The salt content alone should be enough to tip you off.

Enjoy in moderation.

I LIVE for boiled peanuts and eat them every time I'm on the beach which is once a week. However I cannot imagine eating two pounds a week.

I guess it all depends on the modifications in the rest of your diet.

We eat them often. I posted a slow cooker recipe for them a while back. The recipe is for the dried raw peanuts (in the shell) found in most grocery stores

I love me some boiled peanuts but 2 pounds a week seems excessive.

It's like that comedienne from a long time ago who said her sister was in labor for 26 hours and she said, "Twenty six HOURS? I don't even want to do anything that feels GOOD for twenty six hours!"

Too much of anything isn't good but what's too much?
I knew a lady who ate baby carrots continuously. The whites of her eyes began to change colors. If she didn't have brown skin it probably would have shown a change, too. Her doc said "stop it!"

Boiled peanuts have a big following! I'm not a big fan. They're legumes, right?

2lbs/week? My other half eats twice that much in meat every week. Maybe it's all relative. That's about a quarter pound a day... meh?

Enjoy but please do not expect me to join you. If you go by two pounds as sold it is not that much. Shelled is a different matter. I remember seeing them in the canned section of grocery stores.

Ugh, don't buy those canned ones.

The best ones are usually sold out of a big iron kettle on the side of the road - LOL.

We first tried them when we moved down south. We didn't know if you are supposed to eat the shells or not. We quickly figured it out haha.
They are ok, but not anything I'd eat on a regular basis.
