Nuts, as well as whole grains and pulses, must be processed before cooking due to the high content in phytic acid, enzimatic inhibitors and other anti-nutrients. More information here.
Once they are ready, it can be baked in different recipes: biscuits, cakes, pancakes, quiche, etc.

Eggs are one of the most nourishing food: amino-acids, good cholesterol, essential fatty acids, vitamin A, B, D and E, calcium, potassium, iron, phosphor, if and only if they comefrom ecologic and pastured hens.  
Eggs allows to do so many recipes; one of the most interesting is mayonnaise. It's also interesting making mousse, flan, and other desserts.
