I don't know the answer.
My own guess is that almonds have more calcium than pecans or walnuts. He doesn't use cashews.

My personal experience with almonds is that they are too high in fat. They are too "expensive" in that one must consume a ton of fat for a so-so amount of minerals. I can get raw organic almonds for $8/lb, so it's not a price issue, it's a fat issue.

So for me, I stick to sesame, poppy and chia seed for the moment. I love almonds for their milky flavor when I make almond milk.

Almonds have an unparalleled flavor for making nut milk. Cashews make a tasty milk, but these are even more fattening and can't be considered close to a staple.

I definitely agree with Sproutarian about using seeds vs nuts for minerals on a regular basis and also paying attention to omega 3.

I don't think Lou does too bad though, because he takes a ton of supplements, like rice bran-tocotrienols.

To be honest, I think Lou does things that are practical to himself and others versus doing what is totally perfect. He can teach almond yogurt and people like it and will follow it. When their taste buds change, they can do things differently later. I think he purposely tries to keep it simple. He has a tighter budget, less time and less help than Brian Clement, so do not look to Lou for 100% perfection on those matters. But he is an amazing example of all around mental, emotional and physical health while working a very busy schedule and not having a personal chef.
