Hi Annalee

>>Is eating raw peanuts or natural peanuts in their shell or natural organic peanut butter healthy

Peanuts are really a legume and like all legumes, need to be cooked before consuming to de-activate certain "anti-nutrients".

I recommend that the consumption of all higher fat calorie dense foods, like nuts, seeds (& peanuts) be limited to no more than 1-2 oz per day. There is nothing in them that you can not obtain from other more nutrient dense, lower calorie dense plant foods.

>>is it okay to combine them with fruit such as apples or bananas as some say it is a good combo and others say its a bad combo.

Yes, you can combine them. The rules of food combining have little basis in actual science, physiology and biochemistry.
